I got some big boxes of material the other day.
I needed backing for two quilts. Isn't this just going to be perfect? It matches the material Daddio and I used to make the Dresdens way back when. How lucky that Connecting Threads brought it back for another 30's collection just when I need it.
I found this faux batik on ebay for the rings quilt. I didn't want to pay for real batik for a backing. It's pricey.
Here is the quilt kit that was on sale that jumped in my cart AND the backing for it. I used my head this time and bought the recommended backing at the same time as the kit. I usually wait to see if I am going to make the quilt first but this time I AM so I went ahead and got it.
I really miss having a quilt to piece and this is the perfect thing to get me through spring and summer, right? The only thing wrong with this whole deal is that I FORGOT TO ORDER THE BATTING for all the tops I bought the backing for. Now I am waiting for an order of batting so I can get those two tops on the Juki. It's always something.
Now THIS is the kind of shopping I’m used to reading about on your blog. :-). Gorgeous fabrics and kit.ReplyDelete
Apparently you shop like I do. I can Never seem to get all the supplies I need at one time. The backing for the Dresden is perfect! Absolutely perfect!ReplyDelete
Those Dresden patches are gorgeous. The backing will be just perfect!ReplyDelete
Fantastic backing choices!ReplyDelete
Mom and I got a huge roll of batting from Amazon for a crazy price. It should do us for a while!
Nice match on the Dresden backing!ReplyDelete
What beautiful fabrics!!! That fabric for the backing of the dresdens is one that I would buy extra yards of just because it is so pretty and I would certainly have a need for more of it. Love the quilt kit and those fabrics are so cheerful. What fun you are going to have.ReplyDelete
Lovely colors . Whoops, that sounds like something i'd doReplyDelete
The new quilt is going to be very fun to piece-nice work on the matching backing for the dresden plate!!! You've got plenty to do before the batting comes!ReplyDelete
