In preparing my quilt top to send to Donna at Donna's In The Attic, http://www.donnasintheattic.typepad.com/, I decided that I might as well make it big enough for my bed. If I am going to do that, I need to add a really big border. So, off to Boonville to the Village Mercantile, http://www.villagemercantile.com/. Searching for the perfect fabric. I don't need to take my fabric samples with me, heck no. NOT, I get there and the choices are overwhelming. Mind you, I was just there on Wednesday to pick out the fabric for the backing.
I needed to purchase 5 yards for the borders and binding, and at $8.95 a picking out the wrong fabric, could have been a costly mistake! But I should have went with my gut feeling, because I wound up picking out the fabric I had seen on my first trip. Oh well, better safe than sorry.
Can't wait to get it in the mail to Donna on Monday.
