Not another project!
I'm linking up with "Freshly Pieced" blog today for her "Work in Progress Wednesday". As usual, I have far too many to list. What I SHOULD be doing is getting my quilt along quilts ready to quilt together and finish up!
But what I'm actually doing is CUTTING OUT A NEW QUILT! I know, it's crazy! I really SHOULD be finishing up quilts, but my sewing world just doesn't feel complete without a whole lot of tiny fabric pieces sitting around somewhere! My favorite part of quilting is the planning and cutting and piecing! The big stack of quilt tops on top of my dresser is a testament to that! So here's my sewing table today!!
I also have to add that you don't have to have a lot of money to quilt! The blue fabric used to be a curtain. I ripped out the top casing and bottom hem. The yellow I got on sale. The solid pink in the QAL quilt I got for $1 a yard at a garage sale, and the backing of this quilt will have more fabric I found at the same garage sale. I've used sheets, clothes, and always head to the clearance table of a fabric store first when I visit. I've also been lucky enough to have been given fabric by people who never quite got into the hobby. Thrift stores frequently have fabric as well. eBay, and on-line clearance sales are another source. And there's always those Jo-anns coupons and sales, although the nearest Jo-anns is an hour away from me.
Please let me know if I left any great thrifty fabric sources out, and tell me I'm not crazy for starting yet another project!!!
