WIP Wednesday – Stinker

Well, lots of movement this week as I prep for the Project that Ate My Life. I don’t expect it will be as all consuming as the Project of Doom, but still, there goes my early September!

I did manage to finish the top and get Hipster Kitten quilted. I can get the binding on tonight and wash it before donating tomorrow night. After that I need to work on the Cat Commission so I can mail it out along with the baby quilt I just finished.

Nina helpered with the quilting, as you can see. Quite the stinker, she is.

Also worth noting – I pieced together 9 fat quarters to make the back for this quilt, and I did not notice when I got the fabric, but that peach print in the center? Is peach scented. Nasty, fake peach scent.

It really blooms when you press it, too. Ugh. I never thought I’d have to say it, but smell your fabric before you buy, lest you end up with “press and sniff” fabric in your quilt. Imagine putting a whole bunch of fruit fabrics together in one quilt. I shudder to think of the results. Give me the scratch and sniff stickers any day (especially the grape, but never, ever the pizza).

  1. Ick, never heard of “scented” fabrics. Did it wash out? I do have to say my daughter had a doll with a fake baby smell to it. I’ve been known to smell a fake baby a little too deeply….

  2. I didn’t know scented fabric was a thing! Ugh. I have asthma and a lot of scented stuff makes me wheeze –I’m having this alarming vision of having to hold my breath while shopping for fabric the way I have to while scurrying past the scented candles and the laundry detergent aisle in stores.
