This is a post from a happy Layli.
This is a second-hand queen-sized 100% cotton sheet, which will become backing for a twin-sized quilt. Atop it is some the perle cotton I plan on using for the ties & quilting the border.
On the left is a second-hand 1.5 yard-ish cut of cotton, with a vintage pillowcase that would make excellent trim/contrast for whatever I make out of the first.
This is a nigh-unphotographable 3-yard-ish cut of gorgeous soft flannel, also second-hand. The colours are accurate here, but it looks much fuzzier than it is.
These colours aren’t accurate, but the pattern is.
Buying only clearance, remnant, and second-hand fabric is how I justify & afford sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, and occasionally (very sloppily) embroidering.
