I have 2/3 quilts that need backing, the tops are done or very nearly done and I want to be able to back them in pretty fabric!
The problem is cash flow... backing quilts in pretty fabric is an expensive prospect - it takes lots of yardage and fabric is pricey!
The solution presented itself yesterday when the lovely Brenda from Pink Castle Fabrics tweeted about her moving sale!
Yes I know she is in the States, you can check out my thoughts on shopping from the US here.
But her sale section is fan-bloody-tastic, lots of amazing fabrics and designs for a fraction of the price and with her discount code MOVING15 you are laughing! A whole 15% off and she is keeping her shipping rates down for international customers if you spend over $50...
The numbers are all very nice, but what does it actually mean?
Well, I have just bought 9 yards of fabric for the grand sum of £44 including postage...
|Wind in Hemisphere|
4 yards of this to back an Amy Butler Hexagon quilt that I have had in my WIP pile for 2 years... Love the swirls and at $3.50 a half yard the perfect price!
Also I got 2.5 yards each of these:
|Garden Posies in Cornflower|
|Swirly Posies in Cornflower|
So I now have the backings for my 2/3 quilts and at a very good price!
Go check out Pink Castle Fabrics, there are oodles of gorgeous fabrics and missing a fabric sale when you are a quilter is a letting down all quilters.... I tell you it is....
