I was working on my Remainders quilt from the book No Scrap Left Behind by Amanda Jean Nyberg. Find the book HERE.
Well…I ran out of muslin for the project. Darn. Matching muslin is not an easy thing at all. I’ve learned in the past to buy a bolt of it so then it lessens the chances of me needing it to match.
Kalissa called and she was going to Walmart. I decided to ride along and see if I could find some that would work.
When we got into the store, Kalissa took Gannon and went in one direction. I took Carver and went the other. As I was waiting for my fabric to get cut, I looked at the fabric in the rack in the center of the asisle. Look what I saw…they are one clearance for $1 a yard!!
I grabbed the ones that were $1 thinking these would make decent backings for charity quilts.
There were almost… 6 yards of the Spiderman fabric. 5 1/2 yards of the Star Wars and two pieces of Captain American fabric. That was close to 4 yards worth. I was so excited. This should back three twins-sized quilts for sure and was only about $15.
My sewing room has turned into a dumping ground. I’ve been so busy trying to get other stuff done that things go into my sewing room and just sit. UGH. I hate when that happens. I’ll be honest, it happens about four times a year that I have just focus and get projects cleaned up and out.
One of the things I thought I could do is bind a small quilt that came my way via a blog reader. All that it needed was the binding so one morning last week in my early morning sewing session, I put the binding on…
The binding was even provided so it made for a super easy job. I bind by machine. If you missed my binding tutorial, you can find it HERE.
It only took about half an hour. It’s a small quilt so it was quick. Isn’t it cute and festive?
Here is the back.
I’ll be passing this one on for a door prize for an upcoming event.
Besides that, I didn’t get a lot of progress in the sewing room despite not working two days last week. The stars aligned and I didn’t have kids two of the days…That left me thinking I would get a ton of sewing done. NOPE.
I’ve been in a big of a cleaning organizing mode so some of that has been happening…sadly, not in the sewing room.
I had Buck’s kids here last weekend and Thanksgiving weekend. This last weekend I had Carver and Gannon here too plus Kayla and Jasper were here. It’s been crazy busy with family and I’ve needed every bit of time when I didn’t have company just to keep up with the blog. It’s been CRAZY busy.
I told you at the opening of this post that I was working on my Remainders quilt. I did make some progress on that…I have all of these that need to be ironed and trimmed.
I also got some of the machine quilting done on my Bitcoin quilt. I had hoped I would finish that, but alas, that didn’t happen either.
So…no goals met, but I guess that makes this week’s goal easier to make. Right??
I miss my sewing time, but family time can’t be beaten.
