Get thee to Target!

So I have 2 quilts I'm working on, and both have come from this palette.
I can't show them yet because they are both wedding gifts....  but stay tuned, cause they are fun!
The tops are pieced, so now I'm in the market for backings.

And today I ran across a DEAL I had to share:
Target has some sheets that are 100% cotton.  I got the set for $9.98 and I'm going to use the 2 sheets as backs for my 2 blue quilts.  That's less than $5 per backing, and I don't have to piece anything!

Also, it comes in this cute little velcro pouch:

I think I'm going to put straps on it to be a backpack for my 2-year-old.
And the pillowcase?  It's going to become a pillowcase dress for my 4-year-old.
Also, while I was there, I ran into this:

And since my 2-year-old is obsessed with all things elmo and the price was this:

he had to come home with me.  He's hiding in the closet until Christmas.

In case you're interested, here's the details on the sheet sizes. I'll use the top sheet for the larger quilt and then cut the elastic part off and use the fitted sheet for the smaller one.


  1. WOW - Score for you!!! I love a good clearance item! Jenn

  2. Sure is a lot cheaper to buy the sheets than to buy yardage. The last yardage I bought was 10.95 per yard.
