New fabric came in but I did complete some projects so fabric went out to.
Helen from the Cresco quilt guild gifted me a bag of batik goodies. When she asked if I wanted some batik scraps, I certainly never anticipated a BIG BAG FULL…
THANKS so much Helen. I’ve been wanting to make a batik crumb quilt but don’t have crumbs to make one. People have been gifting some to me so before long, that batik crumb quilt is going to happen,but for now, I am still plugging away on my UFOs.
On Friday I stopped that the thrift store in Decorah. I had TWO wonderful finds. I got this suitcase with wheels on the bottom. I am going to use it to transport my sewing machine to class and or for teaching. It’s fully cushioned. Just to check for size, I put my featherweight, Betty in. For $1.50, it was a bargain.
I also picked up this GIANT bag of scraps…Well fabric as many of the pieces are actually beyond scrap sized. Any guesses on how much I paid for it?
If you guess was $3, you were right. What a deal?!!? The bag is the size of a large comforter!!
I had a bad day on Friday so getting these great finds helped balance it out. I love my thrift store..
Unfortunately, I can’t show the projects as they are scheduled for publication. I did give you a sneak peak of the baby quilt and a sneak peak of the magazine quilt here.
I have had LOTS of questions about the tumbler quilt…I will get to all of them once I have it finished. I do have a backing sewn together so it’s closer to finished.
Here are my numbers…
Used this Week: 12.5 yards
Used year to Date: 45 yards + 16.5 Moda fabric + 6 yards of recycled fabric…
