I love fabric

Who can resist 50% off sales? This is the fabric I picked up the other day on sale. I am using these for a couple of quilts for 2 boys in our neighborhood who graduated from High School. I know I'm a little late but I think they will be happy with them anyway. One is going to feature a baseball fabric and the other soccer. I had to order those fabrics off the internet tho since I couldn't find them anywhere around here now. That's what I get for waiting to buy fabric!
I'm also still working on the red and cream Snowball quilt. I'm using it as leaders and enders while working on other projects. It is taking a long time but it's kind of fun seeing the pile grow slowly.

I finished the red, white and blue quilt also. I used up most of the strips I cut but, like always, there are still many left. I'll use them for the binding possibly. I wonder how a bizillion strips sewn together would work for the backing???
My daughter, Denise, will be here on Friday so I'll probably not get much sewing done for several days now. Although, she is bringing a T-shirt quilt for us to work on while she is here.
Happy Quilting! Lynda

You are so ambitious! I need to start a 'leaders and enders' project - you inspire me. My new job is part-time - 2-6 p.m. M-F - so quilting fits in quite nicely.

Love the new fabrics! I'm sure those two boys will be thrilled. Will you show us a photo of the whole red, white and blue quilt, please?
