It is however, the basics. Basics are a must. Yardage is a must. Backings will be made from these and most likely a front or two!
The low down.
Good old basic every day must have colors! I wonder how much grey thread I go through?! I picked this four pack up from Craftsy. But you know, there is a story behind it.
I bought a good bit of yardage from Craftsy a couple weeks ago. Happy days! When the package arrived, wouldn't you know it...it was open. Freak out time! All the fabric was accounted for. Unfortunately, the thread bundle had slipped out and was never to be seen again. I contacted Craftsy, and as always they were very quick to respond and to send out a replacement.
Denyse Schmidt 'Hadley' was a shot in the dark! I needed a backing for this quilt:
and I though it would work. It doesn't look like it from these pictures, but they actually match pretty well. For some reason, which is not normal for me, I wanted to use a print on the back. We'll see.
To go with my Michael Miller Glitz Fabric bundle,
I picked up a yard or soft white and black. Both are Cotton Couture. Raise your hand if you haven't a clue what you will make for the Quiltcon Challenge! This is just in case.
For years this fabric has haunted my dreams! I've seen it everywhere...everywhere but with me! Even after Ikea said 'no more', they really didn't mean that!!
Every once in a while I check out #thegreatfabricdestash on Instagram. I haven't had much luck finding 'me' stuff on there for a while...until this! Someone in Texas bought up 4 or 5 bolts and happily shared her find. I got four yards, which should be perfect for something! To me it was the deal of the century for only $6 a yard!!
The last and most 'Ho-Hum', no sun glasses needed stack...Kona Cotton. I can tell you, I have lots of white now!! (another 8 yards worth) Let's give a mention to the beautiful Sandy Sand, Steel Grey, Basic Black, Deep Red, Terrific Teal, and Jazzy Jade Green!!
Standing 'O', I don't think so! A soft, and quick golf clap...and move on!
