I'm making a log cabin quilt. It's currently in two pieces and then it will officially be a flimsy! I can't decide on a border. I've "auditioned" several fabrics, but...none seem to work. Blue or white or cream all just wash out the blocks. I've almost decided on a burgandy. It's the best choice so far.
It makes the blocks stand out. I tried a dark gray and a light gray. It didn't work at all. Well, this decided it for me. Burgandy it is. I should be able to finish this and add border tomorrow. I'd like to start quilting it tomorrow, too, but I doubt I'll manage that.
Connecting Threads had a sale, so. Here comes therapy part. In the basket are 99 coordinating fat quarters. Yep, blues and creams and some wine colored fat quarters. I don't have a plan for them yet, but they are just so pretty and I love their fabrics.
Then there was the clearance fabrics, so....why not? Several yards of each. Sure, I'll take it. I also got some fusible 1/4" green quick bias. Just in case I ever learn to applique. You never can be too prepared, I hear.
More fat quarters from Connecting threads.
And then we get to the real therapy/shopping part. One of our local Wallyworld's is getting rid of their fabric department. Yep, it's all half off. How could I say no to that? Garry, of course, is still trying to get back on my good side, as if I have a good side, so HE thought it might be a good idea if I went over there and stocked up.
Now, of course, I couldn't say no. So all this fabric stack up in these pics are what I bought there. Some of it are 10 yard cuts and some are 2. Ok...most are 3 or 5 yards. I have no idea how much I bought. But...I bought a lot.
Now where am I going to put it? The shelves have very little space left on them. Maybe I'll have to go get some more shelves tomorrow.
