Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

A Trip to Hobby Lobby

The more I thought about it the more I decided I  needed/wanted more of the turquoise fabric for my JT2 quilt. $3 a yard is a great price and its on clearance so I if I didn’t get it now, I wouldn’t be able to get it later.  I bought the rest of the bolt (it was in 2 pieces). I’m confident that I have enough to finish the quilt top and whatever border I end up putting on it.  So much that I took the smaller piece and put it with my On Ringo Lake for the setting triangles.

Since I was there, I browsed the clearance rack to see if there was anything I couldn’t leave behind.  I found this abstract floral that I think will be a great backing for my Fairy Frost Sunset quilt.  I plan to bind this in the denim blue of the inner border.

After I got home I wondered how it would work with my On Ringo Lake.  It would be OK, but given it’s not a top yet and only OK, I did not go back to get more.

My speculative purchase was these two paisleys.  I couldn’t decide between 2 or 3 yards of the pink and white, so took the rest of the bolt which was a tad over 5 yards. I did show restraint only only purchased 2 yards of the pink on pink.  Again all $3/yard.

My final purchase which was NOT on clearance was a yard of a lavender which I will use for the binding on the quilt I’ve been working on this weekend.  I’m calling it  Daisy Dance since that’s the name of the pink floral fabric which was the inspiration of the quilt.  Here’s a picture of it up on the design wall prior to sewing the blocks together. It’s based on the Quiltville pattern I-Spy a 4-Patch.

I have the top finished and it is basted ready for me to do some simple quilting on it. I found something to use for the backing in my stash.

Now to clean off my sewing table.  There is no way I can quilt, or put binding on a quilt with it in this condition.
