Yippee, I have all four quilts basted for this go round, all going the same place and overdue. The top 2 are the backs of the big girls quilts, and the bottom 2 the backs of the big boys quilts.
I'm such a dedicated baster now that I have made myself a little handy dandy basting kit.
We went to the last shop in the shop hop and got their free pattern, a nifty beach bag with built in towel, kind of on the idea of a quillow. They had these black and white fabrics marked down to $5.00 and since I have been eying the black and white quilts on many blogs I thought they'd be a good start.
The blue fabrics are a big piece of fleece and 3 pieces of flannel for my brothers granddaughter's birthday. This is the third set and I think the last. I think that I may have enough flannel left for a tote bag, would a flannel tote bag be weird?
The past couple of months I have been buying fabric even though I told myself I wouldn't, and the two pictures below are part of my binge. The ones on the left were on sale for $2.98 at Hancock's of Paducah, and I ordered several thinking oh they never have much of what I order. Wrong this time, they had them all. The others are some of the scrap bag fabrics from Keepsake Quilting. I'd been wanting to get some Thimbleberries, since I keep hearing about them and haven't had any. They had free shipping, and so I got one of their scrapbags. They are all perfect and if I wasn't going to keep my initial intention to stop buying I think I'd have to join their scrapbag a month club. The remainder of my binge is a bolt of solid chestnut for sashings and backings, and 5 yards of solid tan for the same purpose.
