Craftsy recently released a new 6-month BOM. The class is free, but they recommend purchasing the kit to participate in the class. People were complaining about the cost ($69). Really? Really? Are you kidding me?
The quilt is going to finish at 69"x69" and is done totally in batiks. For easy math, that equates to about 4 yards of fabric. At $10 a yard (which is a really inexpensive price to pay for batiks), the cost of the material alone for this quilt is $40. It also includes the binding fabric as well as the instruction to make the very striking quilt. People were grousing about the cost. Our instructor isn't worth the additional $29 for her time?
Okay, enough ranting. Anyway, I signed up, got my package delivered (of course, while we were at the reunion), and here they are all pre-washed, pressed, labeled, and ready to go.
|Craftsy BOM 2015|
Speaking of BOM, I noticed on our guild calendar we have a BOM set due this coming Thursday so the remainder of yesterday was completing the other color way I selected to do Dale's quilt.
I had a computer update this morning so had to wait until it was completed to blog. While waiting, I have taken Total Eclipse off DW and will (hopefully) get Beachy Bovines on there today. Meanwhile, I have been researching irons again. It appears my newish one is still under warranty and will need to exchange it for a new iron. It peed all over my planning/ironing table yesterday and I can't continue to have it doing that especially when working with so much white fabric lately.
