Crazy Quilt Lady

It’s official- I am a crazy quilt lady! I just got back from a 2+ hour trip to buy fabric. Not just any fabric, but THE perfect fabric to use as backing for the Red Riding Hood Quilt. I first found it at my local Jo-Ann Fabrics, but sadly, they didn’t have the yardage I needed. The lady at the cutting table looked it up for me and found that the San Leandro store had 15 yards in stock. She gave me all the information I needed, and I pondered a trip to the East Bay. During the week I looked the fabric up online (sold out) and found another suitable choice (they only had one yard, but you have to buy 2 to purchase online). Since I was pretty much SOL, I called the store and purchased the fabric over the phone. It’s a good thing I did as they were almost sold out. Apparently this is REALLY popular fabric! Today I battled the traffic in the East Bay and got my perfect backing!
