This blog has the coolest "sew-along" with week by week instructions on everything included- choosing fabric, fixing cutting mistakes, piecing a back, putting the "quilt sandwich" together, even free motion quilting on your machine. You can find it here:
Also, I just ordered some fabric from https://zandsfabrics.com, and they had a smoking good clearance section. I ordered five (or ten) yards that was only $3.59/yard. Their new stuff isn't bad either- I needed some of the Moda Sweet line that they didn't have in town, and they had it for only $7.50/yard.
Another cool shopping find is http://www.thousandsofbolts.com . They carry fabric lines that are a little older, but super cheap (mostly 3-6 dollars a yard.) Also, they have 108" backing fabrics starting at $8.95 a yard.
Yes, I do other things besides playing online. Sometimes. Just not today.
