I’ve been busy working on my Zuckerwatte quilts….yep, quilts, as in TWO of them at once.
I was looking ahead on the pattern and saw that I need an inner border AND I need a bias binding. I don’t have yardage in pink here. Ya, I have lots of quarter yard cuts and fat quarters but yardage…No. I put that on my list that should I get to New Hampton, I’d check out Material Magic. They are going out of business and all the fabric is now 40% off. Well as long as I needed some, there was my best option.
A couple days later I ended up going. You guessed it…I went to get this…
and came home with this too!! In my defense, these are all pieces that I have confidence that I will use. I cuts for borders for a batik quilt….that made good sense. Batiks are typically more expensive so it’s a good deal, besides, remember me saying I have very little in my stash that is more than a quarter yard cut? But, there’s more…..
What is it about cheap fabric that I can’t restrain myself??!!
My justification…I need some pinks to finish the borders on the Zuckerwatte quilts (who am I kidding? I wanted it.) The pink with words, well I love word fabric….the neutrals, well Bonnie Hunter says neutrals are legal. The bottom neutral I cleaned the rest of the bolt. I think it was three yards worth. Again, I never have anything of the same fabric that’s a larger cut of yardage.
Well, I didn’t stop there either.
This butterfly fabric I really love. That was the complete and total splurge.
The good news is that Hubby knows about it all and still loves me and plans to stay married to me so life is good!
