A king sized quilt top. I was debating if I should get in or not. (I know, like it was a hard decision) I actually left the yard sale and was half way down the street when I told my sister, "I have to have that quilt top" so with two toddlers we made a mad dash back to get my quilt top. Later, when I was looking over all my finds, I realized that the entire top had been hand sewn. I sure am glad that I when back to get this top.
I totally love it. I can't stop looking at it or touching it, and there are some awesome fabrics in it. It just reminds me of simpler times when you sewed with what you had. It even has polyester bits in it.
*It does have a stain on it. Does anyone know what might get it out?
Now on to Sunday: I had an off day today. I don't know it was but I was in a horrible mood. I just felt tried and cranky from the moment I woke up. And I was super emotional. You would have thought that I had a newborn in the house I was crying so much today.
Well the husband decided that he would cheer me up.
Yep, ice cream and shopping money, complete with clear instructions to leave the house. The first stop was Goodwill when I found this.
A vintage king sized sheet. This is going to be the backing for the quilt top. The grand total for my quilt top and backing...$9. It was a thrifty weekend.
