The Drought’s Over

It had been a few months since I last bought fabric, but that dry spell is clearly over. I ordered backing fabrics for a couple of current projects:

Backing and Binding for my Triple Barn Star top.



The backing for my bee blocks quilt:


A colleague and her family had a fabric sale this weekend.  Her mother passed away at the end of last year and she had a GIANT stash. They had a 3-day sale and they could very well have another one…and another one.  The Pink One and I went toward the end of the sale today and I picked up these.  The red skulls are going to my neighbor Polly – she’ll make something awesome out of them!  There are 2 white prints I’m going to use in a few little projects that I’ve been stashing for.


Pink and purple – not a fantastic photo of the colors, but The Pink One wanted them for a ‘blanket for my babies’.



Last Sunday I posted a block I made for my next project. I needed an off-white for the sashing and borders, which I didn’t have and neither of my LQS had the solid I was looking for. Hubby was at his mom’s house last week in the middle of Wisconsin, and the shop near her house had what I needed so he picked it up and brought it home for me yesterday.  I’m hoping to finish the top this week.  Is it just me, or does it always seem like adding sashing takes FOREVER?

Linking up for my second week in a row to Molli.  This might be a trend!

About msminnesota

I'm a wife, mom of two (one blue, one pink), and I work full time. Our family loves to camp, and we're often on mini adventures during the summer. My fall/winter/spring/rainy day hobby is quilting. I started about 10 years ago, then put everything away when The Blue One was born. A few years ago a good friend decided to take up this 'hobby' and I've been back at it ever since. She's my partner in crime (A.K.A. 'the enabler'). I have no aspirations of becoming a quilt designer - I'm just not that good at geometry (I rely on my math major/computer programmer husband to help with piecing backs at times!). This little blog is my way of chronicling my quilting adventures. Occasionally I post about non-quilting things as well. Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to say HI! IG: wannabequilter
