I have been in town (Toowoomba) all day today and my feet are protesting to the amount they had to walk.
The few times I do venture into town i park the car and walk to do all my bits and pieces.
I do go grocery shopping each week as it is to hard to buy enough
food for my lot any more than this.
One of the places I had to go was "spotlight" to get some more material
for Christmas presents.
I am known to get a a bargin now and again ,
and did I get one today.
See this quilters fabric below? well I picked it up cheap.
The checked one was $3 a metre and the rest were $8 a metre.......... plus.........
if you bought 1 mtr you got one free, that's right ladies.
(I think I just lost a lot of readers they are in there cars now and heading for the closest spotlight)
The red material is the same as in DILs quilt and I needed some more of that.
The plain pink one is to bind my quilt and the others............who cares
it was cheap and I know I will use them.
Here is a sneak peak at Karen's my DIL blocks, they are all mixed up as Karen reads my blog
and I don't want to give to much away.
You will have to wait until after Christmas to see the finished quilt.
Now that I have learnt to put a quilt together I am finely going to
make up these blocks. They have sat in the cupboard for years and I never got to finish the class as baby No 6 came along. Yes I no that was 10 yrs ago.
I am going to make into into a single bed quilt for that No 6 child.
Here is my top all together all to do know is put the wadding in it and the backing and quilt it.
