I took a different route for some errands Wednesday and saw a sign for a church thrift shop that said, "Big sale!" Everything was 50% off. How could I resist a Ralph Lauren all-cotton queen-sized flat sheet for $1.50? That's 4 yards of fabric! (I also got a shirt and a top (we used to call them "shells") for .25 each.) At another church sale I got a sack of shirts for $2.00. Here they are, de-boned (as Bonnie Hunter says).
I got the blue and the Christmas pieces (6 yds) at an estate sale for $5.00. The blue paisley in the center is 3 yards, 36"wide. The print on the right looks retro, but it's actually original. It, too, is 36" wide. 2 yards, .50 at another church sale.
I finished the applique for the Baby Bird quilt. I had a hard time trying to "drape" the pennants so I decided to hang them straight. I had enough black medium-width rick rack in my stash for all five rows. I'm auditioning fabric for the border. Both the red (with small turquoise flowers) and the green (feathers) are 36" wide vintage pieces. After I took this picture I found a new (last year) print with retro birds that I might use, too.
My leaders-and-enders are 1.5" batik postage stamps. I made a stack of 9-patches and here's how some of them have been set. I am not sure where I'm going with these but they're fun to make.
