I worked all weekend swinging this gal around on a quilt. This is my Aunt's "last" quilt and I wanted it to be ready once the family is all settled with travel, vacations, etc ....
Such a simple pattern, but so attractive. I'm not a purple person, but this is so pleasing in the lilac tones. The border fabric is also the backing and binding. I think she found this on Missiouri Star Quilt Co if you are asking.
The UFO 'trip' is finally a flimsy and if I can find a backing - it goes under the needle for quilting.
The red boxed squares had the rows already to attach into a quilt top. I think thes needs a stop border and then a scrappy border to bring it up to a larger size. I do have something in the tub for a back which is a plus.
My Mom brought over two table runners for me to finish off. They are 18" wide and 56" long. I'm tempted to shorten them up as I feel they are too long. Also, being older fabrics I am having a hard time finding something that works in color/print for the backing and binding. I may have to go with a muslin back and search more for bindings.
My day is cut out for me. It is to be very hot and humid so a day indoors with the AC works for me.
