I personally made a total of $68. at the sale, and some of that was not quilting-related. This past Tuesday, I went to the senior center to quilt with the local gals, and I took my leftover yardsale goodies. The girls were TICKLED PINK to get to purchase quilt stuff, and I came home with $76 ! And, even at that, I had slashed prices even further.
But, I still have quite a few leftovers from what I had gathered up to sell, so I spent the morning at the center cutting out pieces for a plus quilt.
I started out cutting kiddy prints, and without a specified size in mind, I wound up stopping at babyquilt size. Because I have to lay out the whole design before piecing it, I always wind up stopping at that size. I SO admire people who follow through all the way to making a BED-SIZED plus quilt ! But, that ain't going to happen as long as I don't have a wall or some other place where I could lay out something that big and be able to leave it until it was totally pieced.
After finishing this one, I realize that it is way too bright and busy for my current taste anyway, so I am glad that it didn't grow any bigger. SOMEDAY, I would like to make one in softer, low contrast colors.
Back to the fabrics.........
....I still have much more to go ! So I'm studying what shape to cut next, hoping to make better choices as I go !
In preparation for my quilting day with the gals, I finally bound this little quilt that I made from the piecing I bought at the Food Bank for $1.00.
