The trip with Linda to the quilt shop closing its doors was definitely a big success. I really can't remember the last time I've purchased fabric, so..... the way I see it, I can justify this loot! ;)
Eight yards of orange that'll be destined for backing on my Celtic Solstice
9 3/4 yards reserved for the backing of Hawaii Sunset
and all the rest.... stash.
Once home, I was feeling a bit drained, but I turned on Break Dawn, Part 2 as background noise and got busy piecing backing and batting for Berquist Beauty. By the time the credits were rolling, the backing was pieced, batting pieced, backing/batting/top loaded on the frame, and the first path of quilting completed. A bit over 2 hours just to prep the final stages for quilting. Such a process.
