The quilt saga goes on.
Having got the top, the wadding, the buttons and the ribbon/thread, I now discover that I don’t have quite enough fabric for the backing.
Quite how we managed without online shopping, I don’t know, for having googled “Moda Arcadia” last night, I discovered the only remaining bit of it in the country, I believe. I shot off an email and held my breath.
The reply came back quickly, that last piece had just been sold.
Fortunately, super-efficient Claire of The Bramble Patch returned my email plea for help almost immediately with suggestions for alternative fabrics which should blend in ok.
It looks like all excuses for not finishing that quilt are now worked out and I simply need to getonwithit.
