Phew! I bought some fabric for the back of my red and white quilt the other day, and it cost nearly $100. I love it, though, and hope I'll have some left over to add to the row-robin I hope to put together later in the summer. I have a Joann's coupon that I plan to use this week on batting so I'll start quilting the red and white flimsey soon. I will also have to get some white thread.
Meanwhile, I've decided to go on a few months' fabric diet. My Calico County guild is planning a trip to Keepsake in NH for June, and I may bow out. A Quilter's Garden offers a discount half a person's age during the five days before and after one's birthday, so I'm going to wait until the end of July for a big shopping spree at 32% off. Until then, I'll shop my stash for the scrappy quilt I'm making for a friend and to finish that row-robin and the square-robin that's been going around to guild members. I'll need to keep an eye on the Joann's coupons for batting since I have come to the end of the useable big pieces in my closet that I can piece together. Of course, I am always telling myself to start making smaller quilts but that doesn't seem to happen!
