Just after Christmas I made a trip to Old Town Fabrics for some backing fabrics. These fine ladies always have new items going onto their sale/clearance tables, and with the amount of fabric I needed, I headed there first. Since I have trained myself to be less of a fabric purchaser and more of a stash reducer, I don't keep track of their clearance items like I should. I believe the yardage is reduced to $6/yard. If you buy very much fabric these days, you know this is a significant reduction.
My reason for shopping stemmed from this picture above. Remember just before Christmas when I shared the stack of red quilt tops here on the blog? I mentioned that maybe I ought to try getting a few of them finished. I reckon just this casual thought was all I needed to motivate me because now that is exactly my goal.
Do you like? I can't say whether it was the fabrics themselves or the fact that there was so much of each one, but whatever it was, these two came home with me. I bought all they had.
This piece is from Minick and Simpson's Crazy for Red fabric line. I can back two quilts from this as I got all 10 or 11 yards of it. Score!!
Hopefully, this new year will see me getting at least 3 of those red quilts finished up. I even have some battings stored away. All the parts are here; now I just need to do it.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
