    Hmm, may have to check on that. There is one over in Columbus, GA close to where I go to Joann's. Thank you!

    phillyfabrics is the seller on the ebay free shpping 5.69 a yard BATIKS his regular fabric is 6.99 a yrd free shipping so over like 350 fabrics he has for sale. I buy from him a LOT lol. like too much. I see fq's all the time posted for ridiculous fabric prices like 7.00 a FQ are they kidding me? nothing is that cute. or fq's what a deal 2.00 each! but you add 2.69 to ship it who pays 4.69 a fq? not I. so I have to search for free shipping sellers so you know what your getting up front a deal or not a deal. sometimes people send fq's for 1.00 or less which is ok but some even charge 3.79 each to ship which is also ridiculous. its hard to get a true good deal. the fabrics that guy phillyfabrics sells are good quality fabrics. I want this cactus stuff he has for auction but its getting up there as there are three bidders.. give me buy it now. it stops right there at that price. phew. his batiks are buy it nows. phew again. check it out I will post a link for you to his stuff. hold on.

    Plus there's a coupon code on their home page for 10% off your entire purchase!

    That must be an email only special. When I looked it up, it says $2.99. They do have batiks starting under $5/yard though!

    that is a good price,being an idiot what is broadcloth? is it more like homespun?

    I have and regularly go to etsy. I love to sneak peak ideas from their tablerunners for sale. bad me but its a great idea forum.. I have bought a few things there too but rarely do the sellers have free shipping or sales. I have to find an item then find it for less most of the time. Budget is not huge here. I over spent way too much this month but the dh is not noticing since it was such a cruddy month for me health wise he is feeling sorry. I have to stop for the month if I want to eat however I sure love shopping for fabric. send me to buy say boots or something ugh I hate it. or pants double hate it. I hate shopping for anything but fabric lol.. one track mind. Fabric is my sanctuary. sewing is my joy. I forget I am sick, I forget all the troubles that come with that and I just sew. I love it. What else can Isay about that? nothing that sums it up totally

    I was thinking ok if my partner does not want chickens, or lemons or teapots they might like batiks or they might like pretty florals got lots of that or they might like Christmas got lots of that or.. lets see.. some lovely brown patterned for some reason I have like 10 of those (must have been on a roll when I bought those).. or or.. lots of scrappy stuff and then there is halloween oh I have halloween stuff and maybe even patriotic colors for the summer .. oh pick me a good partner dustysmomma! I want to start NOW (patience brat patience).. tapping toes. tapping table top next to me. its 5:17 a.m. an surely that is late enough to start sewing right? only wake the man up an hour before he has to get up surely he wont mind (kinda like irritating a grizzly bear I would imagine).. nope he wont mind at all

    It's kinda the opposite. Broadcloth is tightly woven and sturdy, but still soft and usually pretty smooth. Homespun is loosely woven and has imperfections, like occasional little knots in the threads, that give it character.

    Broadcloth was originally made from wool, but I've only ever seen it in cotton in stores. Apparently it makes really good shirt fabric, so I imagine it would be great for quilt backs, especially for children or heritage quilts.

    Girl, tappin your foot is not going to make the 19th come any faster. Now quit tappin & find us some more players, lol.

    Some broadcloth, like the stuff sold at Joann's, is a cotton/poly mix. It's important to know if you are 100% cotton or the mix because the addition of polyester means it tends to scorch easily when ironing and can distort with frequent ironing and/or stretching. I prefer not to use broadcloth unless I have no other options because of these reasons. No one wants a quilt where you can clearly see the iron pattern in the fabric.

    On a happier note... I saw this picture on Pinterest and had to download it to share with you ladies. I figure, out of all the groups of people I know on the board, you are the ones most likely to appreciate it.

    Le Brat, I dedicate this image to you:

I love my table mats that I received last time. oh so cute. of course I could use a Christmas wall hanging! or a Fall runner or a.. oh I love it all who am I kidding. oh no did we already fill out our wish list? forget now I am a half wit! ahhh and I cant spell worth beans. moms fault she spent all her time teaching Nancia and left me to be raised by the wolves.

    they should be flocking to this swap in no time at all then to traci's new batik swap and the new group tablerunner swap so yes finish up your 100 chicken blocks, your tropical runner and any other big projects you have going everyone its time for fun fun fun in the swapper world. I get a silly thrill making something for someone else, then knowing they appreciate it because well they do the same thing.. and its my best idea of fun these days. apparently this is going to be a fun few months for me! yipppeee! I will have a very enjoyable head start weekend for a few of those.. just not this one going to have to WAIT AGAIN for this one to close so I know what I am making ....I am working up some excitment now to work up some energy! (can I buy that at walmart they seem to sell everything?)

    Well I've got my tropical runner mostly cut, except the fabric I forgot I hadn't washed (oops!) and it's in the washer now. Um, I'm still deciding on a design for a side swap, but think I'm close. I have to see if I have everything for this design I like. Dunno nuttin about no chicky blocks, and I've somehow missed the batik swap too.

    11 we need 22~ time to go sing a song in a couple other places everyone else go do the same we can pied pipper them in yes we can! people just need to go so what was swapped last time to get a good idea of what the average swap was (unlike our fearsome leader here who swapped a monster item most of us swapped smaller things so dont you new to the swappers panic). The chat is so good here you can't not come and join and be part of it. happy chats and life chats and quilty chats..

    I am making my tropical runner today. Start to end. It will get done! my own list lets see:
    1 quilt for quilters (top finished back finished needs quilting)
    1 tropical runner for my swap
    1 mug rug no rush
    1 doll quilt for april finished and mailing today
    2 fq swaps mailed
    1 batik swap 18 blocks
    3 blocks left for boom Pacific
    dustysmommas secret home decor cant start yet no partner!
    2 quilts one Christmas 1/2 done top one halloween blocks coming in not sewn together
    1 baby quilt due mailed a puppy quilt just the other day to them from jaba
    boom diamonds blocks to make into a quilt.

    other than that I am bored silly. I like to be busy, to have projects to jump to. Like a spaz I have no patience to finish a big project all at once I go from one to the next to the next then back to the first and over to the last. eventually they all get finished I am never late (bell ring please!) and I am satisfied. so sign yourselfs up you can do it. it is fun. its colorful always. its creative for sure.

    Are we sharing to-do lists? I have 3 weeks left of the semester and the prof that is overseeing my independent study for modern geometry says, "So, instead of a final, why don't you write me a 25 pg paper on fractal geometry?" SURE cause that's totally enough time to research a topic I have NEVER studied. Oy.

    Sewing-wise, my list is:
    (1) Quilt (Queen) for my nail lady by end of April
    (2) Wedding quilt due July 1, King-size, 8.5" HSTs in an off-center diamond pattern (I'm slowly working my way through 196 HST's... my goal is to sew & trim 10 per day - those are the hardest part)
    (3) Finish the blocks for one of my row robin groups
    (4) Start the row for my other row robin group
    (5) Make an initial row for a new row robin (different site)
    (6) A quilt that has been in holding for over 2 months now waiting on backordered fabric (for a client)
    (7) Put a wedding gift quilt on The Six (that's tomorrow's goal - we've got 6" of snow forecast on Sunday so I'm going to babysit The Six all day instead of going outside)

    Le Brat, your list is funner. Mine is all work for other people.

    Oh, no! There's another good swap to sign up. Why, oh why, do I do this. I know, I LOVE TO QUILT! Guess I am standing here in line waiting for it to post.

    Here is my list of working projects:

    2 BOM's
    1 needlecase
    1 pincushion
    1 travel bag with needlecase, pincushion and scissor keeper
    wall hanging
    mug rug
    These are just for swaps.

    8 wall hangings for my parents, siblings, children, and cousins using the curtains from my great grandparents house. Their little house has been empty for 20+ years. I took the curtains down and washed them a few weeks ago. Since then the little house has been relocated.

    oh relocated on purpose right? lol sounds like a few of us are sorta very busy! welcome to the group you will like us a whole bunch or run for cover one of the two for sure

    dustysmomma but you get paid for your list right? your not doing this all for "fun"? I wouldnt mind being paid but think 3/4 of the fun would be lost for me. its a chore then. so yes my list wins not taking votes just issuing winners. me. lol.

    posted my possibles for a runner for the tropical runner swap going on in anastasia's ended runner swap.. one we are doing til the real swap starts this weekend. sign ups sign ups! I need feedback which one feels more like the theme.. my partner likes flowers. just adding that for clarification but need her input and think she isnt a poster so maybe that wont happen.. ideas people ideas..

    LOL, I get paid for nothing to do with crafting. I have sold a couple bags I made here & there, but that's about all. That means I don't get paid for here either, but it's all for fun so it's worth it!

    Oh, my to do list:

    -2 swap runners
    -mug rug for swap
    -home decor swap
    -tissue box holder by the 23rd
    -wallet for my best friend by next Saturday
    -been collecting fabric for a king size quilt, but now that I'm almost there, I don't like the design as much anymore
    -Shape blankets for 2 of my 3rd cousins who just turned a yr old
    -memory blanket of my dad's military career for my brother

    I think that's it. Oh, I really need to make something for my sick uncle too.

    wait its Kelly who is a quilter for hire that was who I should have put down sigh memories things only other people have I read it and fling it goes right out the window. long term is good short term is really really short term lol. it is what it is since I cant remember it rarely bothers me til much later then I think you DORK DUH and laugh cause well cant fix it so just laugh at it.

    11 is 2 more than 9 last I checked so your getting there. maybe huge isnt so grand smaller is ok for us too you know just need an even number of players thats all. Its just getting people who can commit to turning something in and then actually doing that. Please dont sign up if your not going to complete your project one ends up with sad partners when this happens. Do you need any angel gifts for people who were ignored last time dustysmomma? any deadbeat non senders? you did state you would post the people who did not mail their items to their partners. I think this will discourage people from doing this in the future. just my two bits on that. in the mean time call in your angels girl ring ring angels anyone home??
