ONE THING A QUILTER MUST NEVER DO!!

Is run out of batting!!!  I am getting close but before I am totally out I ordered from JoAnn's, they are having my favorite batting for half off and free shipping.  Here is the link if you are interested.

I love love the Warm and White, my backing fabric sticks to it therefore I have less wrinkles in the back.  It will be safe to say that more often than not I have no wrinkles.  Out of all the quilts I have done this year, I had one wrinkle.

Notice that I waited until I had ordered before I told you....(silently laughing).

Now I am working on these wonderful Island Batiks, using Strawberry Fields Forever.  I am forever in love with these fabrics.  I have four rows now (too lazy to show you) but later...

I think I might have enough fabric to make another row making it four by four.  Then a nice border to make it fit my king size bed.  I think I can do it....I think I can.

So....hopefully, I will not run out of fabric before I accomplish my goal.





I finished this Braid quilt.  It has been in my UFO pile for about two years, maybe a little less but I am so glad to get it done.  Didn't have any fabric for the binding but I made do with a lime green binding.  I think it works.



The winner of Jacquelynne Steve's patterns is 6 Buttons, 
congrats to her and thanks so much for all of the wonderful comments.  Once again most of the comments did not make it to my hotmail in box but I do appreciate you coming by.

Such a beautiful day outside, I just might take advantage of it and go outside and play.

So for this week-end, 
I wish for you a continual flow of fabric and creative juices,
May your batting be enough,
your threads be plenty,
your scissors sharp
and seam rippers dormat!!

I hate running out of anything that I need for projects.

Isn't it ironic that fabric breeds in our sewing room, but batting doesn't? I just bought some batting too! Your projects are beautiful.

I also try to keep a bolt of batting on hand. Pretty quilts you are working on there.

I almost ran out and started to panic!! Connecting Thread came to MY rescue, with an excellent shipping rate to Canada. Loving all our projects.

I hate running out of anything, but I always seem to do so. Must take your advise. Your braid quilt is gorgeous. And the line green binding is perfect!
