While shopping at Joann's with my quilting buddy, I saw a bolt of batting. It was marked down to $91.99 from $229.99. I also had a 20% off coupon on anything on sale except clearance items. When checking to see if it would apply to the bolt - 20 yards and 90" wide - I was told that it did. So my friend and I decided we would split it. The per yard price turned out to be $3.68!! What a deal!
I just finished this quilt top, so it is one of the quilts that I need to quilt. It was kind of windy when I took the pictures! This quilt, American Crossroads, was in the Quilt Sampler magazine from fall/winter, 2005. I started it in 2013. It's about time I get it finished.
I put some tables together in my sewing room and laid out the quilt top so I could cut the batting.
So far I have basted 3 quilts and still need to finish the backing for American Crossroads. The one in the picture below is made from scrap 2 1/2" squares that I cut quite a few years ago and will be a donation quilt.
Another one that I basted is the state bird quilt that I'm putting together for a friend. You can see the backing fabric on the right.
I am hoping to get going on the quilting ASAP!
This is great quilting weather! So keep stay inside, quilt and keep warm!
