Beautiful September weather in WI *VBS* BUT...frost warnings tonight for the northern regions of MN and WI. Mother Nature is having things HER way this year. This is the project in progress. I've had the froggie flannel for awhile. It keeps getting set aside, as it's barely 40" wide. I love that DD#1 picks up flannel at JoAnne's, but she's still operating under the assumption that a backing is 44" X 54". And she's right. That's the size crib quilts I make. Unfortunately, flannel is no longer 45" wide. So... I decided to make a quilt to fit the flannel, rather than the flannel to fit the quilt. *VBS* This version of Gypsy Quilter's Kitchen Sink is all scrappy, scrappy yellows. There is no rhyme or reason in the piecing. I didn't specifically keep the 4 patches-2 light/ 2 dark. I have the blocks made and just need time to lay them out and join them up!
And I got busy right away last week and found binding for this Purple Paisley piece. I was thinking "orange" or orange and purple.
When I dug into the 1.5" strip bin, this strange red/green/purple/orange Christmas fabric caught my eye. I rather like the contrast of the dark binding against the light lattice.And dig that crazy vintage type backing....LOL. Yup, donations and stash!
I've found a backing for the Barbie quilt top, and that one will get pinned and quilted this week(I hope!)
