I plan on using this as a background to some pieces that come from leftover parts and nuts.
This marvelous grouping just looked like a baby quilt! I am thinking if I choose the right pattern, Carrie might even like it........eh.....probably not.
I saw this as the background for an art quilt. It looks like a print I would have liked to have made already made! Win/win. It is quite a large print, that tree block is 3 1/2 inches square.
I couldn't resist the chevrons. they will be a fall back if Carrie hates the first quilt! LOL.
So after I got those photographed, I decided to put together some backs. Here is a big back for my Modern Louisiana Traveling Quilt. The quilt is a collaborative effort between 3 Louisiana guilds. there were 12 of us and each one had an opportunity to add a block on every quilt. I will have to dig up the whole of them for those who were not with me then.
The big problem with this backing is that light color fabric is b backwards and I had to rip and replace.
And I put a pink backing together for this one. Frank's mother crocheted a million o these doilies. When she died we found two closets full o them. I brought a few home and made quilts for her sister Aunt Emma, her daughter Patsy and her daughter Stacy. I sold some on the internet and gave some away at the various guilds. This quilt will go to Kaitlin to have something of her great grandmother's.
I also put the Kimono quilt on the long arm and started running some lines. (LOL, sounds like a drug, huh? LOL, well it could be!)
Avoiding sewing bindings......yea, buddy.
