Mail Call and Shopping

I answered a question on Ravelly1's blog and today I received this really pretty fat quarter.  Not bad for a good guess, and it matches the skillet I bought today, too.

I got this set of king sized flannel sheets on ShopNBC, supposed to be regularly 99 for about 29 dollars, and free shipping.  I think convervatively that comes out to about $1.50 a yard for good quality flannel.  Partially, it is destined for the back of my Star Struck, but I'm sure it'll be on the back of 1 or 2 others, also.  I pictured honeysuckle as more yellow, but peachy is ok with me, too.  The King Tut thread was in my package that came from Hancock's of Paducah.

This was the rest of my Hancock's order, all on sale for $3.98 a yard.  The stars on my Star Struck will be scrappy, but all the small triangles will be the red and grey.   The peacock feathers are for the border, and the gold polka dots for the inside border.  I see another scrappy binding in my future.  I can't wait to see it, do you get that way when you're working on a quilt?

I love the feathered fabric- too bad that I put in my Hancock order- I won't order any time soon again as the shipping cost is prohibitive to Canada- an extra 50 or 60 dollars to ship it to me... Wowser
I love their fabrics but the shipping costs have got pretty expensive- as much as a third again more of the bill.
Your scrappy lattice quilt is gorgeous- it looks beautiful on the bed- perhaps I will get the binding on the quilt this evening- the temperature is not as hot as it has been this week- too hot to quilt upstairs in the gables of the house.
Hope things are going well and your family is all healthy and happy.
