This has not been much of a productive week for some reason. It is HOT here almost 100 every day. There have been a number of must do chores around the house, and a couple events that took me away from home.
I did finish my Hungry Caterpillar top. The next adventure will be to quilt it. However, a back needed to be found first. I thought I had one in my stash, but any fabric choice that was large enough didn't match well, and the ones that matched were not large enough. I do not like piecing backs, so a shopping trip was in order. Quilt stores in our area are pretty much non existent. My husband suggested Hobby Lobby. I have purchased Kona solids there in the past, but never other fabric. I was not too sure of the quality of their other fabrics either. It was worth a try.
Well what a find. The colors are perfect, the quality really nice, and only $8.99 per yard instead of the going rate at a quilt shop of around $12.00 plus per yard. The real bonus was that it was on sale for 30% off.
One event I did attend this past week was my guild's warm wrapping sew day. These 22 inch blocks were done by me ages ago, but I had fallen out of love with them and decided to donate them to the guild. We finished the top off on Wednesday. Much prettier than I thought once finished. It will go to an agency once quilted for a fund raiser event. So I guess more was accomplished than I thought.
