The program for our Music City Quilt Guild this month was our annual Yard Sale.
I really enjoy this event because one quilter’s trash is another quilter’s treasure, right? I’m a real sucker for a yard sale of any kind, and a quilting yard sale is my idea of nirvana!!! Gently used items at dirt cheap prices – oh yea!!!
The ground rules are that everyone brings at least one item that they no longer want, we put a price and our name on it – if it doesn’t sell we have to take it back home :*) All the items are placed on the tables and we are allowed to “shop” before the meeting and during breaks - BUT we cannot buy yet, only look. After the meeting, the president gives the call to shop and we all run for our desired items!
Yep, it’s a free-for-all scramble!!!!
I managed to pick out a few treasures of course! =^.,.^= This is my favorite….
I also picked up a little fabric – about 2 yards that will be added to my Stash Enhancement Report…
|About a yard of these quilting related fabric remnants|
|Two really pretty homespuns - I see Christmas presents here!|
Yuk!!! While I was quilting this top – almost finished quilting it by the way - I realized some of my seams looked like this….
Really??? How did I not see this???
I finished this top up at retreat several years ago, and I remember the lighting was terrible where I was sitting, but this is ridiculous! How could I not see what these intersections looked like? Oh well. *sigh* I’ll certainly be doing a lot of frogging before this top can become a quilt.
So here's my report for this week...
