Just about a year ago, Eclectic Maker pledged to provide the backing for my Siblings Together quilt when my time came round.
Over the course of the year, Jo's lovely shop has gone from strength to strength, and I'd like to think we have become good friends too, we certainly spend a lot of time together!
Last week I popped in to choose my backing; I had already been in a week or so earlier and decided on some extra-wide Spot On, but not the colour. Within a couple of minutes Jo was cutting me 2.5m of the awesome peony colourway...
I left the shop about an hour later, and only then because I didn't want to be late for school pick up!
I needed a couple of FQs for a commission; so we had most of the bolts off the shelves, many more than once; it was a team effort, and we got there in the end. Maybe if we had stopped laughing and taken it all a bit more seriously I would have been out the door 45 minutes quicker, but where's the fun in that?
I may also have ended up with another fabulous scrap bag, specifically for a couple of little projects the girls had requested and I had promised.
So all promises kept, and smiles all round; that's what it is all about eh!
