Backing Fabric

December 2, 2016

How many of you like to use wide backings?  I do.  The husband and I made a trip to Charlotte, NC recently and on the way home I stopped at the famous Mary Jo's cloth shop.  I didn't have a lot of time and I was disappointed that I didn't find the backing I was looking for to go on the big Irish Chain quilt.  However, when I got home, I found it!  Check out Mountain Creek Quilt Shop.  Not only did they send me this Carrie Bloomston print fabric in quick turnaround, they wrapped it and sent along a free table runner pattern and a thank you card!  I love hometown service!

I've been crazy about newsprint fabric ever since I eyed the first piece. 


In other news, my grands are doing just grand.  Love these two! Can't believe little britches is already 3 months old.

 I facetimed with them today and my DIL held him in front of the computer so he could see and hear me well.  I talked to him and he rewarded me with a big grin!

In the midst of the tragedies around us in East Tennessee (Smoky Mountain fires and McMinn county tornados) I hope you are counting your blessings as I am this Christmas season.
