Embargo, Month 2
What did me in? I got a message that the Civil War sampler quilt I was having hand quilted was on its way home to me. I intended to use the border fabric for the binding of this quilt, but when I found the fabric in my stash, I didn't think it was meant to be the binding.
There had to be something better. A dig through my Civil War stash told me it wasn't anything I already had, so I went poking around at the Fat Quarter Shop. I found what I thought would be a great binding, an olive green and black Jo Morton pinstripe, and it was on sale! I bought it with less than a week to go before the end of the month, thereby losing my "no fabric" bet with my DD.
I wasn't even sure the fabric would be a match - you know how it is sometimes when you order online - the color you get isn't always the color you were expecting.
