The pillow is almost done... still need to attach the pink border then attach it to the pink back. I sure hope I finish it before my niece stops liking pink!

Thrift store fabric finds...

I struck quilter's gold today! I thought I would check a couple of the thrift stores between my work and home on the way home today and I found some great finds!

Fabric 1 This was a sari for just $4.95!

Fabric 2
One of these was a gorgeous table runner than needs a better photo

Fabric 3
Some cotton curtains

Fabric 4
Yards and yards of velvet!

Fabric 5
Interesting cotton and a brocade type fabric

Fabric 6
Some interesting cottons

All of the above fabrics totaled less than $20.00! There are two more stores on another street I will try tomorrow... looks like I will find my interesting crazy quilt fabrics this way for a while -- Sacramento area has a TON of thrift stores! And there is a 3-day weekend coming up!!

Pink Pillow before

I think I have a new obsession -- crazy quilting! I have been devouring how-to's and ideas from online and finally decided to just make something!

I decided my first pillow would go to my niece who loves pink. This is the pieced together front piece before any embellishments. Then I will add borders to make it pillow form size (14" x 14") and then add the back.

What has taken center stage... art journal on back burner this week while I play with my new sewing machine and get some quilting ideas.
