This one is the same fabric I made curtains out of last year...but mine are in the reverse colorway, sage with ivory dots. I had gotten that at Joann's. I haven't seen this colorway before! I'm thinking some pillows for the bed! A funny story about that day at Joann's...I was all set to get the fabric cut, when I realized I had forgotten my 40% off coupon. I wouldn't buy it without it, since it was $9.99/yd. Expensive for Joann's, no? It is nice fabric though, not thin and stretchy like some of theirs. Anyway, I put the bolt back and tried again a few days later. I couldn't find the bolt and then I saw a woman walking around the store holding MY FABRIC! The nerve! I needed something like 8 yards too. I stalked her for awhile, hoping she'd put it back. She looked uncertain, kept comparing it to a paint swatch she had. Finally she went to the cutting counter. Wouldn't you know it she got 4 yds? Not enough left for me. UGH! What luck, right? So I got the four left on the bolt and had to order the rest, which came in a week later. TOTALLY annoying but I did love the fabric so it was worth it. Here's a picture of one of my windows...
Of course the cats had to inspect my new purchases...they don't look very impressed, do they?
I also got another Aunt Marta's iron-on pattern...look at this cutie! I see some more dishtowels in my future!
The binding's all done...you can see a little nugget of it, there on the right...it's the red polka dot fabric I used for the sashing posts. That's another fabric I can't get enough of! I made a little butterfly template so my next step is to trace some on the quilt and do some hand-quilting. Which means this quilt should be done in about 6 months.
Have a great day friends...here's a sweet flower I got at the market to brighten things up!
