It’s a quilt top! Ready to bind!
I spent all week tying knots. A true labor of love. Really, I enjoyed it! I definitely will do this again for my larger size quilts.
Now for the frugal part. I had figured I needed approximately 1.5 yards fabric for my binding strips. My plan was to go to Hobby Lobby yesterday to buy fabric , but it rained all day and was too cold!
I had purchased this cotton twin sized bed skirt for $1 from a thrift store sometime back, knowing I could use the cotton fabric for something else. And who doesn’t love red gingham?
After cutting it apart, and if I did my math correctly, I have approximately 2 yards of usable fabric!
Not bad for $1.
Not my idea, but I had read somewhere to save the thin white part of the bed skirt to use as foundation fabric for string blocks. So, back into the closet that part goes. (My kids will have fun going through my things when I’m gone 🤣🤣🤣)
Surely I could do something with those thin strips! How do you like my new rag ball?
I’d say I got my dollar’s worth.
This is all I threw away! The tag!!
So if you like to be frugal (cheap) like me, look for bed skirts with pretty usable fabric. They are cheap and easy to take apart.
Hopefully I’ll get the binding cut and sewn this week, so I’ll be able to share a finished quilt by next Sunday.
