Remember this? I have finished the quilt tops for Henry & Hayden. I got the borders on last week.
I spent some time this afternoon clipping all the threads. I am planning on trying a new place for the quilting process and they charge $25.00 per quilt to clip the threads. I think not.
When I finished, I packed them into my bag and was ready to head off to Van Alstyne to get the job done. I went to the linen closet to get the soft, old red flannel sheets that haven't been used for awhile. I was planning on using them for the backing. They were gone. I vaguely remember using them to cover furniture during our construction phase last summer. That whole experience is a blur. I must have thrown them away when the job was done. They were old.
I will have to postpone my road trip until tomorrow. I must have backing! I headed off to Tuesday Morning hoping to find some discounted flannel sheets. No such luck.
I did find these navy blue king soft cotton sheets for less than $50.00. Considering it will cost me around $200.00 for yardage at the quilt store, I think we will try these.
Tomorrow: Road Trip!
