When I finish Red Sunset, hopefully on Friday, I will need to get busy on a bunch of veterans quilts. I have 9 here ready for quilting and I know I'll get mre Tuesday at the meeting. Yesterday I didn't have time between some schedule chores and meetings to do my regular dyeing but I could do some things to get ready for starting quilting veterans quilts this weekend.
I cut a roll of batting and we are not stocked to quilt 30 more quilts. After we get through these I will need to order more. I get out batting and backing fabric from Marshall Dry Goods. They have great deals on bulk purchases.
I cut the last bolt of blue fabric to add to the existing small stash of quilt backs. As you would expect, we use a lot of blue and tan so I buy about have of the backing fabric in tan and blue. I buy the rest in white so I can dye other colors to match up with quilts. I use quite a lot of dyed gray and gold and some grayer blues.
I needed some orange backs for some of the current quilts so I dyed the whole last bolt of white. This is enough for 15 more quilts.
Today my friend is taking me shopping to help me find a new funeral/wedding outfit. What I have now is over 10 years old. She pre-shopped Tuesday so I'm hoping it won't be too painful. I hate shopping more than anything. Hopefully, I'll have time to do some quilting on Red Sunset to recover from shopping.
