Unfortunately, I don’t think this is the first time I’ve given this title to a post. I completed this top last year. It’s about a twin size. I had a big piece of the sashing fabric, but not enough for the entire back. I also have a lot of 7 ½” strips cut of the background fabrics so I decided to piece the back. I got far enough to cut pieces of 10” squares from the sashing fabric. Okay, what did I think I was going to do with 7 ½” strips and 10” squares? I’ve thought a little about it and have no idea what I was thinking. However, I have decided to cut the 7 1/2” strips into 10” segments and go from there. Maybe this was my plan all along. I do remember putting this away last November with a sigh. I really wanted to work on it, but other projects were taking priority. Now I really want to finish this quilt so I don’t feel so guilty for starting this one.
I needed (yes, needed) something very portable for my bus trip to the AQS Lancaster Quilt Show tomorrow. These are old fabrics from the 90's (English Oak and Versailles - both by moda - forget what the brown and pink was called, don't have enough of those left to look at the selvages). I still love them.
I hope I have some photos of the quilt show to share this weekend.
It’s 83 degrees here in northern Virginia. We didn’t have a winter this year. Most people are happy about that – not me. Just sayin’.
