I needed to run out to Joann’s to pick up some things for Mom… I’m not breaking my “no buy” vow if I’m shopping for someone else right?!
Of course, this backing might count as breaking it but I needed a flannel backing for the baby’s quilt and the few I had here didn’t go at all so I’m letting myself off the hook for this piece … no other fabric has been purchased for myself in Sept or Nov so we’re heading into the 3rd month without yarn or fabric purchases except this back.
After we got home, I spent some time trying to calculate how much fabric my sister’s two color quilt might take and then I started cutting a new project for me to work on piecing this week. It’s a kit I bought a while back from Craftsy when it was on sale. Somehow I got lucky and my 5 inch square die is actually here in FL rather than at Big Canoe so the cutting is going quickly using the GO. I don’t like square quilts and I have enough of the background fabric to add a row of blocks so I’ll pull a couple solid fabrics from stash.
