Thrifty Thursday

How have I been thrifty this week????

I had two quilts to find backing for, my Denver Broncos quilt top and my Americana quilt top.
This is the finished Broncos top:

It is such a wonderful feeling to finish a project even a quick one!

The quilt has been washed and dried and feels squishy and wonderful. The cushion I made earlier in the week with the scraps perfects the set ready for the Superbowl this weekend :)

 I ended up shop hopping for bargain backing for the Broncos quilt and got a plain navy fabric for $3.50 per yard at Walmart.

And I pieced a backing for the Americana quilt that uses up most of my left over Americana fabrics.

I also have a fabric swatch scrappy quilt top to back but I already bought backing at a thrift store for it, so I have a busy few days quilting planned and hope to have some more finishes to show off soon!

I managed to save some money on these backings in a variety of ways; shop hopping, thrift shopping and piecing backing.
