Net used 2012  18.875

The 15 yards of half price batiks that I ordered on Superbowl Sunday arrived this week.  They are washed and ready to use!
These weren't the exact fabric that I chose.  They had such a successful sale, that they had finished all three fabrics before filling my order, so they contacted me and offered to provide 3 similar fabric at the same price.  I think I like these choices better than my original!   Great service from the Fabric Depot!

Then yesterday, DH booked an oil change just 2 blocks from my favourite quilt shop, and suggested I come along for the ride!  I finally cut some of the block kits for another kaleidoscope quilt (fabric that I found and counted last winter), and went looking for the two coordinates that I need to complete the quilt.  Of course, I went with particular colours in mind, but something completely different jumped from the shelves, and I think it will look wonderful.

I just picked up an advance flyer for a quilt show next November.  The Cypress Creek Quilters are having another outdoor quilt show at the USF Botanical Gardens!  I attended one there several years ago, and it was a wonderful setting for a quilt show.  They did have a plan if it began to rain - they could get all the quilts down and under cover in under 3 minutes!

Head over to Judy's blog to see how everyone else is doing - hope they are all reducing their stash!

  1. Beautiful Batiks. I wouldn't have been able to resist them either. You have used a huge amount of fabric this year - congrats.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
