I feel like I have been wrestling with big bears for the last couple of days!!!
Remember we set up the larger folding table last week--so this week I am working at taming the larger quilt pile and getting them set up with backing, batting, and the basting them--and they are a bit heavy and hard to work with--
But I got one all done--Do you remember this one???
now a quilt--in waiting --for me to hand quilt it--it is all basted--
Now the only problem here is--when that will happen--
as I have 5 more large quilts to layer and baste --
and so this afternoon --I "wrestled another" quilt and got the backing made,
then the batting cut and layered all 3 parts and pressed them together--
all ready for basting--Yep--I hear Christmas bells a ringin!!!!!
I also realized that I did not have enough batting to do all the rest--4 more--I was 2 pkg short--
I really like to use Dreamers Cotton batting, white in the 'request' thickness--the local quilt shop was out--and no way to get there anyways--so in trying to think about where I used to order it online--I decided to check on Amazon as I need it quickly too--found they had 3 pkgs in the right size left--so ordered them--and here is the crazy part--Amazon's price was $12.95 each--the quilt shop's price is $21.50--that was $8.55 more for each one--so even though I would of loved to support my local shop--I had to go with Amazon!!
HAVE AN AWESOME DAY IN WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING--
