Fabric In

A couple of pieces of fabric ordered in the mail this week (many thanks for the excellent service to my friend Meg at New Threads Quilt Shop) - these are going to be used for binding for a couple of quilts which I've had back from the longarmer for a very long time. We won't talk about how long...  One is going to be a wedding present for a friend getting married in April, so it really needs a binding, and as long as I was ordering binding for one, it seemed sensible to order for the other, too. Plus, it keeps me out of an actual quilt shop, where I would no doubt be tempted into other purchases, which I don't really need at the moment (I'll save that experience for the next quilt show I visit, perhaps Sandown in June).  So, my task soon will be to make up the binding to attach to these quilts - and the other quilt I have waiting for binding (for which I can use a fabric I already have set aside for the purpose).  Maybe on the weekend I'll get around to that task. Maybe!

Love getting fabric in the mail! I just got a squishy with 3 yards in it yesterday. :) And your black swirly fabric? One of my favorites...I have had it in green, yellow, pink and blue. You just can't go wrong with that pattern.
