What quilter doesn't love stitching up a quilt from her favorite designer fabrics?
I could start naming designers but today's post is all about thrifty quilting. When I started quilting over 20 years ago all of my fabric came from big named stores. Joann's and Walmart being at the top of the list. I didn't know quilting shops even existed, let alone that there were designer fabrics. My first two projects were made from old curtains and sheets. Whatever I could cut up and stitch into a quilt was fair game. I've even used Corduroy, because it was free. Well not much has changed. All the fabrics below came from Walmart, Joann's, and Hancock fabrics. Pretty cute little bundle of sweetness! The red stripe on the bottom is my favorite. The great thing about Joann's is the coupons. 40 to 60% off everything. Adding "cheap" fabrics along with designer fabrics can extend the stash without killing the budget.
I found these at a local thrift shop were just to cute to pass up. I paid $2 for this adorable small bundle. So are you a fabric snob? Or do you see all fabric as quiltable?
