World Quilt Day

was last week, I know, but the world has also been a dumpster fire recently. And I think we both know I have not been the most up-to-date blogger. Ahem.

On world quilt day I hung my roll of batting from the ceiling in my garage, over my longarm. I bought the roll of batting before I knew I was moving the longarm into the garage so it worked out kind of well all around.

You can also juuuust see the top of the quilt loaded on the machine. After my last post (about my beloved 2.5″ squares) Roseanne teased me that I should do something with them. I’ll show you that next time.

Stay well my friends,

Happy birthday to me*!

I met up with a quilty friend for tea this week and look what she gave me!

She isn’t going to use it and didn’t want to store it anymore.

Let me zoom in a little for you…

Yep, it’s a king size wool batting. Retail value: A LOT! Lucky, lucky me.

 

* It’s not actually my birthday.

Day 348

I was working on a small project today and needed batting. I headed to the garage stash to see what I had out there.

Luckily I had enough for the small project. But this is what I have left.

Can you believe this is four different kinds of batting? With these sizes I feel like I should start making coasters. I hate making coasters though.

Since my friend died and her quilt shop closed…I need to find a new supplier. There are lots of shops around town, I just have to work out the best quality/price ratio. It’s going to be more expensive than what I used to pay!
