You Know it was Cheap...
These were sold side by side at the store, but you can see they are probably not both licenced by Maywood Studio! I am pretty sure, though, that they were both less than $5/yd. Rite Aid stopped carrying fabric shortly after I bought these - maybe this dodgy supplier was the reason! The fabric quality is ok, with no obvious flaws, so I am happy to have them.
I have been working out the yardage I will need to complete the RVQG BOM. I bought one yard of the stars, and only half a yard of the moons, and both have already been cut into for another project. The blocks will all finish at 12" square, and many are applique so I will need the whole square. But I have worked out that if I piece some of the backgrounds in quarters, there will be enough. And actually, that will probably be more interesting too!
In any case, I intend to do the whole thing from my stash. I have plenty of batiks that I've bought over the years "just because," so this is my chance to use them!
