This may not seem like a big deal, but lately finishing ANYTHING is a big deal. My life has been extremely busy and stressful over the past few months. But it’s done, and I’m happy with it.
I challenged myself to make this quilt entirely from previously used fabrics. There are shirts, dresses, sheets, you name it, it’s in there. The backing is a sheet my mother gave me. I had been on the hunt for one at a thrift store but I decided to ask. Well, ask and ye shall receive, she gave me 3 sheets! I’m set for backing for a while. I bought the batting with a half price coupon at Joann’s, and I wanted a particular color for one area so I bought a shirt at Waterfront Mission when they had their 69 cent sale recently. In total I spent about $7 on this quilt.
The profit from all quilts I make and sell this year will go into my travel fund.
