I must confess, I fell off the perverbial wagon last week. I had been doing so well! I had to purchase 4 yards of flannel to back two quilts to go to Japan.... found it on sale, and spent less than $9.00. This was for such a great cause... and I don't keep flannel in my stash as a general rule.
My UFO #4... was one I did not have backing fabric for... so I needed 7.5 yards for that if I'm going to get a start at finishing it. (with 10 days left this month.... I'm not feeling very confident). I also got this on sale, and spent less than $25.
then the trouble started.... LOL
JoAnn fabrics had their clearance fabrics for 50% off.... this made most of them $1.50 a yard....and I lost all control. I did get 55 yards of fabric for $85.00 Most of these were larger pieces that I can use for either backings or borders or both. oh, yeah... I picked up three pieces of fruit / veg fabric for an exchange....
