I’ve had this hankering to go to Spotlight for about a week now as I wanted to find fabric for the back of Memories of Spring and also some white for the scrap quilts that I’m turning into baby quilts.
I had pretty much talked myself out of going as really, I won’t be using the fabric for the backing for some months yet but then I talked myself just into going to Spotlight to “look only” and just fondle the fabric and see what was there.
They are going through their fabrics and selling some of it quite cheap. There was fabric at $3/m, fabric at $6.99/m and fabric at $8/m and they also had tone on tone at 50% off!!
So from the $3/m heap of fabric, I grabbed 4m of the grey fabric that’s at the bottom of the pile in the picture for the back of my Doreen’s Hearts quilt, 4m of the green in the middle (although this ended up being $6.99/m*) for Memories of Spring – I hope I have enough. It’s the same size as blue + tan so I just got the same size backing.
I also got 2m of the white on white fabric at $5/m for the baby quilts and 1m each of the yellow and pink which were $6.99/m.
*They ended up being $6.99/m but some other customer had put them in the $3/m pile so they weren’t quite the bargains that I thought that they were. Still I did pretty well 😀
Ewwwww, I’m watching Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets and it’s at the point where that big spider is on the tv. I can’t watch, I’m so going to have nightmares!! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk…………..
In other news…..
I have finished the binding on the 16 Patch quilt. Now, I just have to wait for the baby to be born for me to add the label onto it. Now, all I need to do is find room for it whilst I wait!
I have also been working more on the applique for Memories of Spring and have now finished 6 flowers. I was going to try and do more tonight but I got sick of them so instead I finished binding 16 Patch. I’ll try to finish them later this week.
Oh uh, I think I better watch out. This quilt is going to be really pretty, I think I better hide it before Grandma or Mum steals it!!
So, my current list of things to do is:
- bind 16 Patch
- bind Heart Love
- finish applique on Memories of Spring
- attach binding onto Blue + Tan
- finish butterfly placemats
- finish Jan’s placemats
Oh and when I was at quilt class I bought a bag of scrap fabric so I can put some more flavour in my scrap quilts. My 2′ square were looking a bit boring! The picture doesn’t really do it justice but I got some beautiful bright fabrics.
Cutting it all up will have to wait until I finish a few other things. That and I better start cutting out 1800 black 2′ squares for my hexagons. It’s going to take me a while!
I’m going to the Matchbox 20 concert tomorrow night. My Mum got me a ticket for Xmas and I can’t wait!
