|This is another pillow top that I have quilted.|
|My daughter wanted a fluer de les. Her son cut the pattern out and I tried to put it together. It was a lulu. I finally got the wunder under and ironed it on and then I was able to get all the curves with a wide zig-zag stitch. That was my second try. I could not use the first one. Guess you learn as you go along. Stephanie is not really into ball but this is the New Orleans Saints emblem. I have more but need to take more pictures. |
Monday we went to a couple thrift stores. I found some fairly new window shams that I bought. I brought them home and ripped the seams out and a nice quilt jumped out at me.
I also found a pillow sham that was new. I ripped the seams and a nice apron jumped out at me. Both cost me a little over 1.00 dollar. I look at the sheets when I go. I have found several that will make good backings on quilts. Can't buy material for a backing for 2.00 dollars. I even look at the evening dresses to see what I might like. So far on that line.
I did not have scraps since it has been a long time since I sewed. So I am trying to get some cheap. Have any of you quilters done any thrift shopping for quilts or crafts?
Write about it.
