Miscellaneous

Postings will be rare for the next few weeks. I am doing some stuff at my gym in the evenings and on Saturdays so hand quilting is all I will be working on for a while. I do have a handful of projects that I have all the fabric for. So, once the gym stuff is over I can work on some of that.

I found out that the Walmart in Morehead City still has fabric so I headed over there on Sat to pick some up and find out of they were closing it any time soon. They lady cutting fabric said that they were not remodeling until at least 2011. YEA! That means I still have a cheaper fabric option than the local quilt store and the internet within a reasonable distance.At least for another year or so!

Here is what I picked up:

Some yardage of solids and some fat quarters. I have a lot of prints but no solids. So, this will be a good addition.

I washed all of it, along with all of the fat quarters that I have accumulated and after a LONG evening of ironing, this is what I got accomplished :

Sorted and ready to become wonderful quilt designs. Man, there is not enough hours in the day!!! HAHAHA

Also, on Sat morning I went to the ABC Sale (Attic, Basement, & Closet Sale). I found a bag of fabric for .75 cents. Who can pass that up? I think it is mostly decorator weight but we will see what we can come up with for it!!

Quilts for Kids Update!

Well, I discovered the wonderful world of machine quilting yesterday afternoon. Man, that sure does speed things up! Being as this was my first one it was definitely not without its flaws. It kind of puckers in some places in the front and the back is kind of wrinkly. I think the back being wrinkly is because I ran out of basting pins and could only do about a third of it at a time. Plus, the backing was a very slicky feeling material (it was shiny) so that may have had something to do with it moving around also.

I got the binding sewn on yesterday afternoon before dinner. Now all that is left is to sew the binding down to the back and then it is going in the mail.

Oh, I read that there is a new video/commercial out for the Quilts for Kids. I am posting the link so go watch it!
