I wouldn't give you 2 cents for it until ...
What a difference a border makes!
I've been in the pits, looking at this top, getting careless in my sewing, because I could not fathom all these scraps turning into anything useful. I had visions of stashing it in the car trunk for road-side emergencies and not ever looking at it again. Another lesson to ME ... a decent border always gives an 'ordinary' quilt pizzazz!
We are expecting warmer temps this weekend - the garage is full of clumps of mud, horse manure, slop, from our outdoor wedding adventure but I still want to baste this quilt Sunday.
And below is my current Fabric Diet. I have been faithful in logging everything purchased that was sewing-related. Fabric IN is still gaining over fabric OUT, but at a slower rate than in 2008 (sounds like Federal budget conversation).
2009 Fabric in 95.50
2009 Fabric used (83.20)
2009 $ spent for sewing supplies, etc. $1,439.12
