The first Wednesday of every month, I am privileged to meet and sew with 12 wonderful women. We call ourselves Loose Threads and we vary in age from 82 to 60. The first Wednesday in February I started putting this 5-yard quilt together.
This quilt is approximately 52 X 68 . It is a pattern that I have used over and over. The focus fabric is called Go with Dick and Jane and was in my stash for almost 18 years. The background looks a bit gray here, but it is a soft mint green. The orange-y clamshell fabric and the gold were also in my stash. I posted more detail on this post late last year.
The pattern calls for the inside border to be the same as the gold fabric in the offsetting block.
However, as I wrote in the 2017 post, the fabric has marks on it and I could not get it out or cut around it. So I decided on the dark brown.
I had just enough of the focus fabric to use it for the large outside border. I like it a lot and now that fabric is gone with the exception of about 4" by 18". Because the fabric is directional, it took a bit of planning to cut it the proper way. I don't have an idea for the backing, but will use the aqua/teal bubble fabric for the binding. Because it is on one of my challenge lists, but only the top has to be completed, I am calling it done. I don't quilt my own quilts, only table toppers, place mats and small stuff. So this will wait for a backing and for my long arm quilter to have time (she bought a new house and is going to Paducah in April) and for me to have some extra dollars!
I will be linking up with Finished or Not Friday and Finish It Up Friday.
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
