Below is the wool batting and the backing. As soon as I get it measured, I am going to wash it. These peppered cottons are so soft, and this Studio E wide backing will match in texture nicely.
Meanwhile, I have finished piecing this top. During the process I fell out of love with fabrics. Maybe as I quilt this, I will redevelop a fondness for them again. I thought putting these 5" charms on a navy background would calm these modern prints down. For the December Chicago Modern Quilt Guild holiday swap I made a basket out of 2.5" charms and liked it much more than I thought I would. See below. Purses? Soon. My goal is to do at least 12 by the February 1 SewPowerful.Org deadline, but I have a feeling it will be more since I already have 7 of them completed.
|I'm using up the various leftovers, including anything remotely navy blue from my stash, on the back.|
