Last year, I began a quilt that I was hoping to finish by Christmas. Time moved quickly, and I made good progress . . . for a while. Then I had other things that were more urgent come up, and as is usual for me, I set it aside thinking I would get right back on it in a few days.
|The pattern I'm using: Danish Delights by Little Louise Quilts (this is not my actual quilt!)|
Well, here we are in March of this year, and that quilt still isn't finished. The top just needs one more border added and it'll be done, but then there's the quilting to do. I am learning free-motion quilting with these tutorials at A Few Scraps, but I still have a long way to go.
|This is my quilt, using Birds and Berries by Lauren & Jessi Jung. Please excuse the strings.|
Enter God's timing.
I am subscribed to Groupon, an online group that features daily deals in your local area. Today's deal just happened to be for a local quilt shop, to get either $40 of fabric for $20, or $80 of fabric for $40. In addition, I had just received an email from Groupon offering me a first-time buyer's discount of $15 off any deal over $30. I quickly did the math and discovered that I could get $80 worth of fabric for just $25. Which left me $5 out of my current stash to go buy myself a coffee or something.
Isn't God's timing amazing?!
