And a great big One Monthly Goal Score. I had planned to just get this to top stage. But, I did that so early in the month that I kept going. I finished the binding about 10 on Sunday night. (please note, I usually don't get things done well in advance but I did this time!)
Butterfly close up. I used metallic thread on the "curl."
Close up of the quilting in progress. There were a lot of thread ends to tie off and bury. This is already hanging in the great room.
Do you know about Sew It's for Sale? It is a yahoo group dedicated to the selling and buying of sewing related items. You can check it out and join here. I've bought several items over the past year. And, I've sold a few things too. You contact the seller directly and make arrangements. Sometimes the sellers list really reasonable prices and sometimes you think, "Um, no. Too expensive." Below is my most recent purchase.
These three fabrics are KPKids by South Seas Imports. I think they are 10+ years old but will work well with kids quilts. A bit over 4 yards. Total cost including shipping was $18. Not a bad deal although sometimes prices are even lower. I'm not sure what I'll be using this for but they will become either a quilt or a pillowcase (and maybe both!) Do you buy or sell fabric or other sewing related items online? What group do you use and do you like it?
