We've often talked about the high cost of quilting.
So what's the least $ you've spent on a quilt--lap quilt or larger size?
Has anyone ever spent nothing on making one--by that I mean, ever had the fabric given to you or cut up old clothes and used an old wool blanket (or a castoff blanket, non wool) for the batting--and recycled for the backing as well?
We often bemoan the high cost of our hobby. I'd love to hear some creative ways you've NOT spent a lot on a quilt. (And pulling it out of your stash doesn't count, unless when you put it in there, you got the fabric for free.)
For example, maybe you bought fabric at $1/yard (yard sale) and were given the batting and backing, so you managed to make it for say, $8 plus thread.
