I was the very lucky winner of Dana’s Moondance giveaway weeks & weeks ago, but just got around to posting about this great fabric!
Moondance is a new Free Spirit line by Jenean Morrison. (All the links are on Dana’s great blog- House of Roux which is one of my must-read bloggers.)
I think this is one of those fabric lines that is a stash staple. There are tons of different projects you could use this for from pillows to quilts to purses or…
I made this skirt over New Years, but man- I had a hard, hard time deciding what to do with this fabric. I wanted to use this fabric for so many projects that I kept hesitating from cutting it up. The giveaway was two ½ yard pieces and one fat quarter. I almost didn’t use it because I could see my overflowing scrap bin with which I could easily make this from…
BUT, I really wanted to try out this new pattern and I wanted to use this great giveaway fabric so the decision was made.
I hate to say, the pattern was a little disappointing. The layout is jumbled with slanted black & white photos and steps spread out on one huge piece of paper. It really depends on your style. I’m a skimmer and more of a visual learner so I love good photos. I don’t regret buying the pattern and love that it includes a huge size range (6 mos- 7 years). I know I will refer to this pattern many more times, but I need to make myself slow down and read the pattern next time.
Needles to say my Moondance was used up, but I don’t regret it one bit ’cause now I get to buy more. I see another hourglass quilt in my near future.
