The LQS has an awesome sale going on. Even so I wasn’t going to buy anything any — but they have select wide backings on sale for $5.95. I needed one more backing for the Challenge Quilt II quilts. The plan was to create a pieced backing from shirtings. But for $12, I could save myself a lot of time — and I had access to the long arm Saturday. So, I bought 2 yards of this fabric. The report will show 4-1/2 yards as I converted the measurement to 45″ equivalent.
The quilt still needs binding, but it’s quilted, excess batting/backing is trimmed, and the threads are trimmed.
This week I also got around to making the pillowcases for Nifty Thrifty and the Green Disappearing 9-Patch quilts — I opted to split the green “yardage” – I think I had 15″, so these pillowcases have a narrower cuff than I normally use.
