Year to Date
Ok, so it wasn't the greatest month but thank heavens I was able to sell some fabric at the FCQ Quilt Show Peddler's table. Heck, I sold 11 yards so that isn't bad. All of them were fabrics I bought at the Country Piecemaker's auction last November. And, I used a hunk of another fabric from then on the back of a FCQ charity quilt. It could have been so much worse. I should have a couple of finishes in May as the Scrap Squad quilt is almost ready to quilt.
But, I am still purchasing fabrics.... yesterday I was able to get a wide back for SS #2. And, the best thing, I was able to buy it at the local quilt store. It's red -- much of the quilt is white. I am nervous about the red bleeding. Here's why.
See all those wrinkled things on top? Those are the Color Catchers I threw in with the backing. They turned all sorts of reds, pinks and purples. (Purples mainly because some of them had been used before.) So as soon as the dishwasher is finished I will wash it again with 2 brand new Color Catchers. And, yep, some of the Color Catchers were new -- I just don't know which ones. No matter what it is obvious there is a lot of loose red dye swirling around in the washing machine.
Now on to the last two seams of SS #2. I have already bought and pulled fabric from my stash for #3. I'm really excited about it. Can't wait to finish #2 so I can start #3.
Happy Quilting All!
