Fun Day with Quilting Friends

Wednesday was our monthly Civil War Chronicles quilt club meeting in Fredericksburg.  We got our kits for the next stage in the quilt and I was able to find a lighter teal to mix in with my fabrics for Strips That Sizzle.  Unlike the others, it is not a batik, but I believe it will work.  Thanks to Jeanette for spotting it after I had given up on finding anything.  I also purchased some Microtex machine needles.  I have not paid as much attention as I should to the kind of needle I use, and I’ve heard very good things about these.

I still need to find replacements for these two fabrics from the lavender/purple color way.  The one on the bottom has too many variations in value and I cannot place it in the value range.  The other has some words that were stamped on it at the end of the bolt that make it too small a cut.  It has been prewashed, but the printing did not come out.
