Ahhhh, a quilt top!
My goal is to finish this quilt for my mother by Christmas day! I have the three layers ready to be pinned tomorrow. I’m also working on a list of all the different quilt blocks used in the quilt.
The backing I found for it is flannel and it’s perfect! In my last post I explain my mother had in mind a quilt made of Bandanas. I changed it up a bit using my #2018monthlycolorchallenge 12” blocks, but the little paisleys reminded me of the quintessential Bandanas print. Also it was $3.39 a yard at a near by “general goods” store in the heart of the Amish and Mennonite in my area. I can often find quilt store brand yard cuts on their “All Flat Folds $3.39/yd” table. Fortunately they had exactly 4.89 yds (hmmm, that’s what the receipt said!) of this flannel and it just worked, as two pieces sewn together, with not much to spare!
So in the 11th hour, will I finish this quilt? The only thing trying to thwart me is our resident Grinch. But thankfully his heart has been growing due to his new found Teddy bear friend! 🐻💕
I’m really excited to share the final Modern Matisse inspired quilt with you. Until then I wish all of you peace, joy and very Happy Holidays!
