    Went a little shopping spree with my oldest daughter. We drove over 100 miles and went to 3 different LQS. We were picking out fabric for her wedding quilt. I make a special quilt for each of my girls as they get married.

    Well during our outing, I found a wonderful sale at one shop. They had bolts and bolts of $3.00 a yard. Most had started out at $8-10. Well as a true quilter, I couldn't pass it up. Bought a couple of yards to put in the stash and this whole bolt of 12 yards for a OBW or Stack and Whack. Decided to use it for the backing and the front. What a deal. $36 for a quilt of good fabric. What a lucky girl I am :D

    it looks much brighter in person. The photo really didn't do it justice. Can't wait to get started on it.

    No this is all mine. My daughter picked out brown and blue prints. Though I had to order the brown online. Needed 8 yards and the store didn't have enough. I will post a picture as soon as it comes in. Guess I need to do the wedding quilt first. But my heart will be wanting to do the OBW.

    It looks good and it is gonna be pretty! Can't wait to see the quilt. I hadn't thought about using the same fabric for front and back.
