I truly thought I was going to have as my picture today Nifty Thrift finished. After all, I would be home from Bonnie Hunter’s Trunk Show in Marshall, Missouri by 7. That would give me several hours to quilt before hitting the pillow. As it turns out, it’s a good thing I have today and tomorrow off as apparently the drive wiped me out.
The quilter’s garage sale was hosted by the guild hosting Bonnie. There were some great things, but I was looking specifically (although realistically, not expecting to find) batting. I did purchase More Adventures with Leaders and Enders and had Bonnie sign it for my collection. There are several quilts I’d like to make in the book, although they will have to wait for now.
So where did the fabric come from? Well, fabric in the top left was originally in my mom’s stash, I was supposed to make some pajama pants out of it, but that didn’t happen and passed it to my sister because I couldn’t figure out what I’d use it for. I got it back to make pillowcases, but there’s not enough for 5 cases, so she passed along the two space fabrics as well.
