The owner of the LQS where the class was being held was kind enough to let me have credit for the class towards another one in the future. (Aren't quilters the nicest people?)
Anyway, here are some pictures of my new goodies.
A little bit of Christmas fabric from the 60% off bin- enough for backs:
This pile is for my stash- a few polka dots, some blacks and three just-for-funs:
(Did you notice the white is a tone on tone polka dot? White polka dots on white! Too cool.)
Next some awesome pretties that I have been eyeing up for a while and they were HALF OFF!!! It would have been wrong not to buy this stuff.
This next pile was supposed to be my Drunkard's Path. I was going to do the layout where it radiates out bigger and bigger. I bet no one else in the class did a Hawaiian print one! My mom took the class and I have the templates and stuff so she is going to teach me how to do it.
This was just the cutest fabric I thought. It may end up as curtains in our "retro" (really old and crappy) camper.
Here is the grand stack. Almost up to the seat! These guys are folded wide, too. There are quite a few backs in there.
These are some pretties that I picked up at Goodwill and have slowly been looking for other things to go with them. I am thinking some sort of shabby chic type quilt. Well, in between Joann's and Hancock Fabrics, we hit Goodwill and I found this:
It's a bedskirt so I will get a lot of fabric off of it. It will set off my little cottagey prints PERFECTLY.
During the photo shoot, Sly came wandering through. He is my "old kitty" and does not care for the kids or Paul. He is a very handsome fellow, and is quite large- almost 18 lbs last time we had him at the vet.
I got a few of these blankets at (where else?) Goodwill after Christmas for $4 each, and I am hoping to use them for quilt backs. They are not fleece- they are called microfiber. They are really soft, so I am afraid they may stretch a bit. I needed to make a quick top to try it out.One of the things we could use in this house are some couch quilts that actually match our living room. I made this quilt top up from an Urban Chicks Blossom jelly roll and a sheet. (Sheet was 99 cents at Goodwill!) It's not quite done- I have to add a strip down each side, but it's almost done.
The Blossom line matches our living room colors PERFECTLY.
