It’s been so busy around here. But amazingly, I still have fabric movement happening. Part of that is due to sitting to long in a hospital with nothing to do.
I was browsing and ended up buying a backing for my double wedding ring quilt. I scanned trying to find a combination of something cheap, good quality and a color that would be good. When I did Kelli’s she picked green for the background of her’s. At the time I thought was odd but what did I shop for??? GREEN.
But…I didn’t end up with green. I ended up this….
So how did I do on my list of what I was looking for…
Yep…cheap. It was $3.50 a yard
Yep…a color that would work.
I’m trying to tighten up the budget a bit. So I took several of the other backings that I had in the cart out of the cart but I did leave these in…
They are 1/2 yard cuts… $2.75 each. I still have it in the back of my mind that I want to work on my Hawaiian Sunset quilt. At one time, I had all the fabrics I needed to make it but I’ve since raided the stash and need to replenish it.
The pinks, purples and bright blue is just what I needed.
So this is my first from the fabric store purchase of the year. Is anyone else trying to refrain from purchasing lots at the fabric store??
P.S. Whittle Fabrics is GREAT for Civil War fabrics and many others. Their prices can’t be beat! Check them out HERE. I’m a huge Grunge (Moda fabric) fan and they offer is for $7.50 a yard. WOW!!
