Quilting a Long on the Cheap….
Did you hear? Crazy Mom Quilts is having another quilt a long. I dug through the cupboards over the weekend trying to find something in my stash that would work and I came up with this…
The fabric bundle is a of 37 sweet sixteens (1/16th of a yard fabric cuts)…I got it for $13 when a local quilt shop was having a clearance. My background is going to be the brand new 100 percent cotton sheet I found at Goodwill for $2. I measured the sheet about 3 times and tried to calculate the required yardage and have decided that I am close enough to give it a try. I am working on removing the lace from the sheet and then I’ll be ready to cut into it.
I am a bit nervous as I am not sure if this will end up being enough fabric. I think I can round up a few more scraps that will match if necessary but for now, I am just keeping my fingers crossed or my quilt just might be a bit smaller than the model…regardless, it will be a guessing game right up to the finish.
