Inheriting my mom's rejects!
This weekend I took my mom that yellow and red quilt that I had finished quilting. She had another one ready for my to bring home and quilt. She made this quilt for my nephew. She is trying to make and handquilt at least one quilt for each grandchild. When she got this quilt together she decided she didn't like it enough to hand quilt it for Isaac. I, of course, loved it. So she said I could have it! It is currently 84"x84" - so I am going to add a big wide border so that I can use it on my bed. I stopped by JoAnn's yesterday to use my 40% off coupon to buy batting. I walked quickly by their quilting fabric and fell in love with this floral fabric in the bottom picture. I think it goes well with the civil war feeling of the quilt. I can hardly wait to get the border on and the quilting done so I can use it on my bed!
Speaking of batting - does any one have a good source for good prices on batting?
Hope everyone gets to quilt some today!
