Backing Fabrics Found… March 27, 2011

… and thread, stabilizer, needles, glue, more fabric and (not pictured) 10 yards of batting!

I drove down to Rocking Chair Quilts in Butler, Missouri today and quilted my Pink and Blue Carolina Christmas quilt and my Dragonfly quilts.  While I was there I looked at fabric for 3 of the 7 quilts I need to get done by the end of June.

I decided the Nancy Halvorsen 108″ wide backing fabric would work for two — the purple, yellow and green Old Tobacco Road and the green, peach and magnolia Chain Event.  The orange fabric?  Well, I just liked it.

Then, I made a stop at Jo-Ann’s and the in-store sewing machine shop for stabilizer and thread for the new-to-me embroidery machine.  I think the first thing I’ll make is a couple of quilt labels.  Finally, since the batting was on sale and I had a coupon which worked on the entire purchase – both regular and sale priced items – I picked up 10 yards of batting.  Other than scraps, I was out of batting.

Now I just need TIME to get the quilts quilted and bound. I setup two appointments in May to do more quilting in Butler.  There’s so much going on in April, I can’t get back down there.

Off to see about binding a quilt.
