Bargains. Aren't they great!

I took our grandson back home yesterday and we went shopping at Hancocks, I was in search of batting to finish up these quilts.   I intended on getting three king size ($120.00) and that would do all the tops but they did not have any.  So I looked around and they had a bolt of by the yard, warm and natural.  It was 40 percent off.  I ask about the price for the whole thing with the 50 percent off that starts in a day or so and since I live three hours from their store could I get that if I bought the whole thing... Well I came home with a bolt of 20 yards for $113.00.  

And I found out yesterday I won a charm pack from Betty Lou at American Vintage  Quilts.    Thanks again Betty Lou.

Maybe I should have bought a lottery ticket....LOL

Happy sewing and have a blessed week.

Making slow progress..

Last night I was able to get the backs for all six completed.  I also "played" with the Robert Flynn multi-frame system that was a gift from a friend.  It is in need of a piece of dowel to hold one of the bars on but I think it might work.  Going to give it a try sometime this weekend.  Our grandson is coming so it might not happen until he goes back home.

Have a great weekend and happy sewing.

One top complete.

Finally I have one completed. Tomorrow the others will have the final border and I can get the backs made. I am ready to get to the machine quilting.

Then for the label and the special hearts.....

I think I might see an end to these quilts.

Holiday weekend

Well I spent a lazy day yesterday doing some chores and loading the new kitty my hubby brought home.  She is a little bitty thing.  My Yorkies are getting use to her, but the big dog outside tried to gentle take her from the hubby he was testing to see if she was bite size or not.  So until she is bigger and can't go through the 2inch fencing she will be inside.. Or she might be a snack.

Today I must sew after church that is.  I have borders cut and they must be attached by the end of the day.  That is my goal anyway.  I hope I attain it.

Happy sewing and God Bless.
