    Latest AHH HAA moment!!

    Was cleaning up my sewing room today and came across a pile of sheets and dust ruffles my DD had passed my way. Did you know when you disassemble a dust ruffle how much you get out of it? 6 yards of material 15" wide. And that was a twin!!! and You can use the part that looks and feels just like interfacing for my string quilts!!! Out came the Acuquilt and bam those bad boys are already cut and waiting. I am like WOW.....
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Diet Dr. Pepper in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    and if you don't like the ruffle fabric, that makes a great foundation, too.

    Got a few of those I need to "recycle". Great idea - especially as foundation for a string quilt

    Great idea! Our K-Mart closed many years ago and they had a huge going out of business sale and at the end it was either 90% or 95% off - they had a ton of Martha Stewart bed ruffles left. But, I was not into quilting then, but did realize that surely somebody should use that fabric for something.
