    Well it's my LQS's 7th anniversary. So the sale today is, buy 7 yards, get 7 free. NO LIMIT!

    I've been wanting to make a quilt for my bed. It's a king size and the pattern I have calls for TWENTY-THREE yards of fabric. That a complete with backing etc.

    So I think I will take the plunge and pick out some batiks and go to town! Then grab some backing fabric for a few kits I have purchased.

    Most of the fabric at my LQS is priced somewhere between 7 and 11 dollars a yard depending on the fabric. So getting it for 3.50 to 6.50 a yard for Moda fabrics is WONDERFUL in my opinion.

    ....So you can tell I'm excited....did you all REALLY need to know all this? No but I leave work at 4 to go fabric hunting and I'm just ready to go and do it NOW!

    I will get pics of the fabric this evening, they are blue green and purple batiks. But I am using the pattern "Simple Stars - Beautiful Quilts" by Debbie Maddy.

    It's kind of a beginners pattern with no diamonds or "y seams" all squares and 1/2 squares. WOWSERS who until now I've only done smaller quilts...a king size is an INVESTMENT!! Glad I got it when it was on sale, otherwise I don't think I could have afforded to make it. :)

    we want to see your haul. Can you pick up 14 yard for some of us? oh I would love to get 7 yards for free, even if I had to buy 7 before hand.
