DWM: two finishes and batik bonanza

 I finished quilting the red rail fence quilt (see it on last week's DWM post).  This photo shows the no-mark flowers I quilted in the border and two of the three red fabrics I used on the back.  (And the red/black binding.)

"Christmas Boxes" is finished!
6-1/2 yards in all.  This will be raffled at the AAUW-Waukegan Area Branch holiday party on December 13.

I'm pleased with the way the quilting turned out, especially in the blocks.

This is the batik bonanza. There are a Hobby Lobby and a Joann's en route to the civic center where the quilt show was held. I stopped and shopped. The yardage on the left was HL clearance ($4/yd). The yardage on the right was on the Red Tag shelf at Joann's, half the reduced price ($3.50/yd) (plus a 20% off coupon). The FQs were quilt show purchases. The scraps in the front were gleaned from the scrap tubs in the quilt show boutique, sold for $5/gallon bag on Saturday and $3/gallon bag on Sunday.  No, they didn't come that flat. I pressed 'em.

See what other quiltmakers have on their design walls at Judy's Patchwork Times.
