Oops, I did it again. I bought some fabric..in my defense, we have some quilt tops that need backing. I hit the “add to cart” a few too many times at Whittles Fabric. If you haven’t been to Whittles, let me just say that it’s my “go to” online place to shop especially for backing fabric. It’s usually only $5 a yard….all of these were only $5 a yard. Oh and shipping $5 no matter what I order. I can’t drive to town for that good of a deal.
If I am purchasing backing I typically just buy 6 yards. If I need more than 6 yards for the backing, I’ll just add a strip to make it a little wider. 6 is a good number for me.
The pretty green is for my Celtic Solstice quilt and the red and grayish backing piece with the blue flowers are for UFO’s. The navy piece is for a quilt that we are working on that will be coming out in Quiltmaker Magazine later this year.
It’s fun to see a great stack of fabric and dream of the quilts that will be making their way to the finish pile before long.
Thank goodness I’ve never figured a good way to count incoming fabric because this stack would have been 25 yards worth!!
I did use up some fabric this week for binding Kelli’s Scrappy Trips quilt. If you missed that, it’s here.
Used this Week: 1 yards
Used year to Date: 191.5 yards store bought + 48.5 Moda fabric + 67.5 yards of recycled fabric…
Today we hooked up with Patchwork Times.
