A lack of willpower

There’s something about getting a bargain that saps my will to resist buying fabric. There was a time that I was piecing a lot of backs to use up stash but somewhere along the way I discovered Connecting Threads clearance tab and started watching for $3 a yard fabric. Since most of my donation quilts can be backed with 4 yards or less ( leaving a little for scrap quilts) that’s just $12 in most cases. I can’t resist. There was a purple HeartStrings quilt that I couldn’t find a backing for while I was in GA and I saw two clearance fabrics that would probably work … and ordered both of them along with a few others … After all, I wouldn’t want to have to pay postage!


Not long now before I can begin piecing something new … Wonder what it will be? A Heartstrings top for our November project? A tumbler quilt? Maybe one of the 3 Drunkards Path quilts cut out in GA? One more day here before we head home.

    Thanks for the tip to check out Connecting Threads’ clearance fabrics. Definitely great prices for backs!

    I LOVE Connecting Threads! In fact, I’m expecting an order on Friday. Even with Free Shipping, they always send my orders right out. Living where it gets really cold, I back most of my family quilts with their flannel — it’s the best!

    I just wish they would ship to the UK. I also wish that JoAnn would open a few stores here too, but I don’t think either of these things are going to happen!
