Tail Wagging the Dog

I came across this fabric on sale at Big Horn Quilts and had to have it. A friend back home is a beautician who had always cut my hair. When we were back for Daniel's funeral, she met us at the shop on Monday (her day off) and did mom's hair and cut mine and Chad's hair and wouldn't let us pay her. She also brought tons of food to mom's so when I saw this fabric, I knew I had to get it to use for a backing for a quilt for Jennifer. So, now I need to make a top to go with the backing.

Speaking of shopping online, have you ever been to Thousands of Bolts? Their prices are unbelievable. I ordered more fabric than I should have and no . . I'm not saying how many yards. Last time I mentioned the number of yards, I think too many of you thought I had lost my mind. Let's just say that any time I can get Moda fabrics for $4.15/yard, I am in fabric heaven!

I ordered Friday evening late, the fabrics were shipped on Monday, I received a tracking number via e-mail and they will be here tomorrow. I will be waiting at the door for the Fed Ex lady!

Those are 2 of my favorite on-line stores for quilting goodies! I bet you will be washing fabric tomorrow!

You are evil! I have sworn off buying fabric so we can save for a new car. Mmmmm . . . maybe I'll get some money for my birthday this weekend.

You always find the neatest fabrics! That one is perfect for Jennifer!

Love that website. The first time I visited it, I ordered a ton of stuff - not admitting how much either!

Let us know when you get your order. Can't wait to see what you got!

Thousand of Bolts and Big Horn Quilts are great places to shop. I am always impressed with their effiency.

That fabric is a great find. I will be watching to see what you make of it.

I've been there before but worried that maybe the fabric was not a good of a quality as the LQS fabric, so you'll have to let us know. I love Moda, so I'm always game to get any Moda I can find!!
