Like everyone else, I have tons of projects in various stages of completion. I keep picking away at getting things completed so with that goal in mind, I purchased this fabric... all needed to finish up something already in progress (except Little Boy's choices).
Light green and green mottled fabric - I will use this either setting my 9 patch blocks or for my string tulips. $3 a yard, 3 yards of each to give me flexibility.
Front row left - 2 yards of blue fabric - final borders for my checkerboard log cabin. $3 yard.
Front row - the other 2 prints are extra wide quilt backs - I think 105" wide! I got 2 3/4 yard of each for backing fabrics at $5 a yard.
Back row - 2 flannel fabrics (one green butterfly at $1.70 per yard and the other blue flowers for $1.98 per yard) - picked out by Little Boy for a soft blanket. I will just put wrong sides together and probably straight quilt lines up and down to keep it together in the wash. We also got shiny blanket binding for 29 cents a yard - it is a maroon color. Definately not the combination of colors I would have chosen, but it IS his blanket so whatever he wants is just fine!
Where did we find such bargains? At Marden's - one of my very favorite fabic stores in Maine. The trip north? Well, I will save that for another post! Let's just say, I am happy that I stopped at Marden's because, although not the BEST part of the trip, it was 2nd to best.
