An update on the 50c thrift store quilt block bundle...
My goal with this quilt has been to keep the cost down to honor the fact that I only spent 50c on the quilt blocks at a thrift shop. So I used batting offcuts from previous quilts, I had to sew 3 pieces together. I used an old sheet as the backing fabric and I bought the cheapest black quilt fabric i could from Walmart for $2.44 per yard to do the black sashing and borders. So the whole quilt probably cost about $5.
I also tried a couple of new things with this quilt:
1. basting spray - this stuff is wonderful, I am not sure how I've survived my first year quilting without it!
2. Specific machine quilting thread, I had been using just the all purpose thread.
