Quilting and New
I have still been in quilting mode. This was another RC18 block quilt. The centers are cute little froggies and they had a touch of pinky/red in them so I tossed a few red polka dot squares in the green mix. The back and binding is the limey green.
And this lovely Burgoyne Surrounded quilt is staying right with me. I love this Nancy Gere fabric line and the block is area history relavant. It was gifted to me as payment for all the donated fabrics I share with the gals that come to sew. Well, one insisted she pay me for all that fabric and I told her to bring me an ugly. This is what she gave me - Thank You Diane! Not ugly to me and yes, I am keeping this one.
Then I have this tote to play in for the next few days. A new commission using all of these flannels - one corderoy and one cotton. These were used to cover hay bales for an outdoor farm wedding. Now the mom wants three memory quilts from all of this - and I think there is enough for 10 quilts. I pulled the lightest ones out to use as pieced backs.
This is the pattern she chose and it is perfect for this abundance of lovely fabrics. I know a lot of people hate to work with flannel, but this is very good quality flannel and there are some prints in that tote that I would love to have in my own stash. ** pattern is called Abundance but I have no reference and when I google search - 1000 plus abundance patterns popped up except this one **
So this is my next few days work - and scrappy goodness as well. We are into a very cold snap with possible heavy snow thru the weekend; I think I can amuse myself indoors.
