    Connecting Threads 'Soaked Fabrics' sale

    Hi. Has anyone else looked at this week's sale of 40% off all soaked fabrics and kits? I was just browsing through my emails and when I opened this one I fell in love with those fabrics. I want one of everyone of them! My dilemma is that I don't know what to do with them if I get any.
    Can anyone suggest a pattern (fairly easy as I am still kinda new at quilting) for any of these and which ones would you pick? Last time I ordered from them I knew exactly what I had in mind to do.
    thanks

    Looks like "Soaked" is a fabric line having to do with rain.

    I have no idea, but how CUTE those are!

    I like Missouri Star Quilt Company's Double Slice Layer Cake pattern, which you can search and see on YouTube. It's a great way to use a lot of different fabrics from a line, and it's easy-peasy!

    A good go-to easy pattern (IMHO) is Yellow Brick Road by Atkinson Designs. It is simple, works really well with coordinated fabrics and always looks much more complicated than it is.

    Look at the patterns they show with the fabric. That will give you some ideas. I too love that fabric. And has anyone seen the new limited edition batiks? Might have to break my buying moratorium and get some.

    I tried yellow brick road and hated it. It's easy for some, but was way too 'then do what you want' for me. I guess I need more direction when following a pattern. Many folks on the board like YBR, but I have talked to a few others who felt as I did.

    Having said that, I also have to say that I have color issues, and that might have contributed to my dislike of the pattern. However, I did get help picking out the fabrics, so it should have worked.

    I love this line of fabric and am thinking of buying some. But, like you (OP), I've been wondering what pattern so that I could use these to show them off to the best. They are adorable!

    I was thinking a scrappy chevron. http://thequiltingviolinist.blogspot...-complete.html
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    OK. I had been thinking about them at about $6/yard but at $3.56/yard...I had to have some. My daughter loves those galoshes!

    Wait a minute ladies! I wasn't encouraging you to buy the fabric.....save some for me!
    How about a Warm Wishes? or Turning Twenty?

    That is cute fabric. I'm not buying fabric currently (unless of course it really calls me)- I have 85 yards of fabric laying on the kitchen stools because I don't have anyplace to store it. Trying to use it up.

    Be careful you don't fall into "new quilter fabric buying syndrome" I have a cupboard full of focal fabrics...no two go together.
    My rule now is that I have to have a plan unless its a blender thats onsale or I KNOW i will use it for a quick project like a wallhanging or pillowcase or purse then I just buy a small amount.

    Ok so now I broke my promise to myself to not buy more fabric this year.

    I bought layer cakes and some of the fabric to make a big twister.

    Have always wanted to make the twister. I had a layer cake of French General by Moda and got them all sewn together. Now I like them so much this way that I don't want to cut them for the twister! Which gives me a very very good reason to get Soaked!

    I really liked the bright, cheerful colors in this line, but then I got to thinking it might get boring later on.
    GramMER to eighteen, plus two great-granddaughters and four adopted greats soon we hope!

    Do you want to use all 14 together? A bargello with a twist.

    I bought some of this too yesterday! So cute and that price it didn't take long to click it into my cart. I have an "April Showers" Mug Rug hop coming up and this fabric couldn't be more perfect for that - the rest I'm not sure about yet but I know I'll find something.

    Yep I fell into "The new quilters syndrome" I "hopefully" made my last purchases last night on some thread & a supply of batting. Lord help me to NOT buy anything else for at least a month.
