I have my little 'Village' quilt sandwiched up and waiting for it's quilting. Yes, that's two layers of batt - really one layer of craft felt and one of batt, which really makes wallhangings lay so nice against the wall. The binding is made (the red) and maybe that will even get attached for handwork later.
Remember I dumped my 2" barrel to play with the smaller 'Sister's Choice' blocks? Well, why put them back in the barrel - play with them. So another Postage Stamp quilt is in the works and I really hope it eats them right up.
I had a bit of a shopping spree. This is one of three boxes that I need to go thru. Check the slips, pull the stickers, and some will get matched up with the project they were bought for - the rest to the shelf. I don't buy a lot of yardage - FQs are yardage to me. BUT, there comes a time you need that size.
Fabric.com had a super extra wide backing sale a couple of weeks ago. I do like to piece backs, but sometimes you need to just 'get-r-done' - plus, my suppose yardage is really running low and very little choice.
I, also, like to get my white-on-white and beige-on-beige this way. One yard of an extra wide is 3 yrds and at $6 a yard - do the math.
I know I said a couple of times that I had enough thread to last a few years. Well, I keep my empty spools for inventory, plus I went thru my thread cart. A lot of spools used - I know I passed on 2 cones and some of those white spools to a quilter who uses them to make Christmas trees. AND a lot of my cart spools are at least half used. So ........ Connecting Threads has a 30% off sale right now. My SIL and I did up a 'really need' and 'oh, I love that' list and we are waiting on a large order of thread to arrive.
