"One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!"
This month, my local quilt store is having a sale and all of the clearance fabric that is normally $4.00/yard is now HALF PRICE!!! That's quality quilt store fabric for $2.00/yard! What's not to love about that???
For that price, I decided to pick up a LOT and piece the backings for my next several (dozen) quilts instead of buying wide backing fabric which usually sells for $12.00 and up/yard!
So...off I toodled to Classic Quilt Shop in Clarksburg, WV, today to find some treasures that I can use as quilt backings...
...and came home with 75 1/4 yards of fabric!!! I really like stripes on a quilt back, so that was a lot of what I picked up along with some pretty florals. $609 worth of fabric from manufacturers like RJR, Marcus Brothers, Northcott, and South Sea Imports for only $152.50!!! SCORE!!!
I think that red striped fabric on the middle bolt will end up on the back of the Christmas Mountain Morning quilt! And those two blue and yellow coordinating fabrics on the left end of the bolts...I have plans for them, too! ;)
Speaking of quilts...here is Ginger on hers...not that she's spoiled or anything...
After Andy gets up in the morning and takes her out, Ginger comes up and jumps on the bed with me to catch some more winks. Then when I get up and make the bed, she likes to sleep between our pillows on ON my pillow so I cover our pillows with this baby quilt. It is hand-embroidered and hand quilted. I rescued it from the Goodwill Thrift Store in Valdosta, GA, for $3.83 a couple years ago.
She's not spoiled or anything... :)
