Kona Bay Cotton Sateens arrived

Yummy - yummy! Scrumptious, soft, luxurious cotton sateens have arrived from Kona Bay.
Yes - I weakened at Quilt Market despite my best intentions...
BUT - BUT - But I told myself - these would be GREAT in my Creative Sweatshirt Jacket Kits! AND, my old buddy Pres. Doug from Kona Bay made it just TOO attractive to pass up.

FYI - SATEEN means that the floats of the fabric go horizontally - rather than vertically as in SATINS. Floats of threads over more than one in the opposite direction reflect light - thus it is in the weave, not the finish, that the beauty of satin and sateens resides!

Sew.... dresses, purses, bags, pillows, cushions, robes, jackets...and, of course quilts - but HURRY - yardage is LIMITED!

Bury me with this Gold Titanium Rotary Blade

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!
I cut out 3 garments (class reunion coming up next weekend!) last night and this morning - and this Titanium 'Roll the Gold' 45mm Rotary Blade is STILL cutting fabric - even knit with Lycra in it - like it was butter! I've already cut quite a few fabrics for my Creative Sweatshirt Jacket Kits with it - and I was expecting it to start leaving 'hinges' if you know what I mean... when I cut these garments out, but it was GREAT!
