Remember the new freestyle plates/bowls I purchased several months ago? They are the same as what is used by PF Chang restaurants. Well, tabletopstyle.com had a sale over Memorial Day so I bought two freestyle 14 oz. bowls and another 11" freestyle plate/bowl. The 11" is on backorder, but here are the 14 oz. bowls. Aren't they cute! I ordered them on Thursday and received them on Friday! Since my order was over $50.00 the FedEx shipping was free.
I worked on the backing for the teal/purple quilt. I had to wash the African print fabric so I went for a short walk while that was going on. I didn't get all my steps in since the sky looked like this
There is not quite enough fabric to make the entire back out of the print so I decided to sew together the left over blocks and will insert them into the back. Here are the two lengths of fabric pressed and the blocks laid out. I still need to add a bit of length to the strip of blocks so that is what I will be working on this evening.
I then dug into my quilting thread to see if I have enough of the right colors to quilt this piece. Here is what I found. I am trying to use what I have and not buy anything else. I believe I can make this work.
I checked last evening to see if I had enough upholstery weight fabric to cover the newly acquired chair and foot stool. I believe I may have enough. One piece is 6 3/4 yards and the other piece is 3/4 of a yard.
Fabric.com had sent me a coupon for an extra 20% off so I bought the 108" wide navy flannel I needed for the t-shirt quilt I am making my niece. My order arrive yesterday.
I also bought a yard of each color of these Alexander Henry prints. I have no idea what I will use them for, but I had to have them.
