A couple of weekends ago I went to JoAnn's to get the interfacing I needed for my Crafty Traveler Tote, and of course I had to take a tour around to see if there was anything worth seeing and then coming home with. As I scanned down the "nice quilting fabric" section, I spotted this:
This print is from Denyse Schmidt's Richmond collection, but I'm not sure of the name. I thought it'd make a nice backing for my Florence Starburst (it's nice how the colors in Denyse's collections coordinate), so I took it up to the cutting counter. The cutting lady was really chatty, and I guess she wasn't really paying attention because she cut me 5 yards instead of the 4 I had requested. Then when I went to check out I was only charged for 1 yard instead of 5 or even 4! I even said something to the cashier about the price not seeming right, but she just smiled and said that it was. So I paid sale price for 1 yard of fabric instead of (possibly) retail price for 5 yards! AND I had a gift card! Cheapest quilt backing ever!!
I also picked up some of this coordinating print (Bakersfield plaid) for the binding:
Doesn't it all look nice together?
So even though I hadn't planned on doing much with my Florence Starburst flimsy for a while, at least I'm prepared!
Linking up with Kate Quilts for this week's Sunday Stash!
