Mondays usually are for Mystery Quilts, but by next Monday the mystery will be solved. So I'm saving the next mystery post until then!
Today I have a mash-up of things to show you. First up, the next great-grandchild's (not mine, my Mother's) 12th birthday quilt. I blogged the details here
new batting and wanted to see how it looked after washing.
The Idaho Quilt Barn.
I particularly love that this batting comes in four weights: winter, spring, summer and fall. I used "summer weight" for Katelinn's quilt. I bought an entire roll at the Home Machine Quilting Show in Salt Lake City last month, and since I picked it up at the shop on my way home from McCall, I didn't have to pay any shipping. It worked out to just about $8 per yard!
If you want to test this batting for yourself, they sell it at their etsy shop and I think they are still offering the special shipping rate. (No, they didn't pay me to talk about their shop, I just love the shop!)
I'm getting my long-arm quilting station arranged the way I want, with a little help from Elder Son (who does not like being photographed!)
Here's another view:
Needless to say, another trip to the Home Depot is in order for more pegs!
I'm linking up to Lily's Quilt's Fresh Sewing Day.
And most importantly:
Yes, 126 Moda charm squares. Which you can win in my giveaway to celebrate 100+ followers.
