What else did I pick up while I was there? These Snapware containers will be used for the Scrap Quilting class that I'm teaching at the guild's retreat in March. I'm teaching the selvage quilt too. I guess I'll be working on those classes for the next few weeks. I also bought the backing for the RRCB Mystery quilt. The fabric is pretty, but it has a muslin texture. With the white printing on it. I'll decide how much I do or don't like it once I use it. As typical of Jo-Ann's, Snapware was 50% off, I used a 50% off coupon for the backing, thread was 50% off and I used a 50% off coupon for the needles.
I've decided how I'm going to quilt the selvage quilt. I used this design in the Christmas quilt that I sent to Massachusetts. I figure that if I stitch it a zillion more times, I might get halfway decent at it. It will be stitched in turquoise thread. I think I'm doing a series of wavy lines parallel to the selvage strips in white or off-white thread on the selvages.
I haven't decided on the border yet. I'll probably continue the swirls in the X shape into the border and then quilt something around the rest of the border. I'll keep a watchful eye on the border as I'm quilting the quilt tomorrow. Hopefully, it will talk to me.
