Ruth’s Stitchery is having their big 25th anniversary sale starting on Thursday. There are two sales a year and I buy all my backings at those times, plus whatever else I know I will need for upcoming projects. I try to keep impulse spending to a minimum. However, when it is 50% off to finish sale bolts I occasionally succumb.
I’m trying to plan my purchases now. I know I need some binding fabric, and a few backings. I’ve also been playing in Electric Quilt with layouts for the Christmas Wishes embroidered blocks. I’m not sure I’ve found THE one, yet.
I started out fairly simple.
Moved on to a little more complex.
Then I went off to Benartex’s website and downloaded swatches and came up with the most complicated so far.
At this point I’m leaning somewhat toward the last layout, but I’m still undecided. Oh well, I have another day to come up with ideas.
