I haven't done this in awhile, and since I had everything I needed to complete a project, I signed up for FNSI and check out what happened!
So first, you know I needed batting. I had the Friends BOF wall hanging and I have Pat's Quilt to finish, both have backing fabric but I need that batting. It just so happens that Joann's had some fabulous coupons: 50% off one regular priced item and 20% off total purchase price.
I found a roll of my beloved all natural cotton batting for $14.99 a yard and got 3 yards for a mere $22.00. There was also this package that had a piece of 35" x 45" cotton batting that was already 50% off so I picked that one up for $5.00. Happy camper is what I was and still am!
Last night I put the backing on and then put the binding on with the possessed machine...which is strangely being very good to me. I think it's all the talk of replacing it with a very expensive Bernina that has it working. I haven't even had to perform the incantation (really it is a slew of profanities loudly directed at the evil thing) in order for the machine to cooperate! I can say for certain that the machine prefers expensive threads. Fine, as long as it works. And work it did!
Not the best picture, and I will have to take a better one later.
For my Friday Night Sew In, I'm going to say this is a WIN!
Crossing another thing off my list for Finish It Up 2016! And because this is even more important...MANY thanks to Wendy at Sugarlane Designs for having the Friend's BOF in the first place...so much love for this project.
Until next time.....Keep on Stitchin'!
