After I posted my parcel this morning and before I start the next project as always I pop in my local Savers to see what they have. Score! I found a pair of cotton curtains for $4 each, the size, 45 inches by 80 inches, Perfect for quilt backs.
I also bought this heavy weight cotton sheet, (I always look for white) The border will be great to use too!
I could not believe my luck when I saw this, a cotton doona cover, this is the front, I will cut them out and use them in a block with the recipients favourite colours and colour the cats in as well. The Aussie Hero quilt I am going to start next has her request for cats, and/or horses, Royal blue, purple and teal. so that is what I will colour the cats in. I will cut them out first, arrange them then colour them in. So Much Fun!
This is the back of the doona cover. I will use some of this as the binding too.
