Whooping Up Friday
I made the one hour fabric basket using up some old Tula Pink fabric from the shelf and an old fat quarter (probably from JoAnn's) for the lining. This did take me longer than an hour as I had trouble getting my fuseable batt and fuseable interfacing (I used Pellon heavy weight as I thought the basket was too 'floppy' with just batt) to fuse. I ended up using some spray baste - I think it was the heavy humidity that day that gave me such grief.
Although this quilt was done in June, I am considering this quilt a finish for July because I didn't get the label on until the 4th of July weekend. And that is the heat, humidity, and rain in the background.
Framing or boxing up charms makes a quick quilt. And I had fun quilting this.
A lot of straight line quilting with color. Playing with my color thread is as much fun as playing with all the color fabric.
I'll be linking up with Whoop Whoop Friday with Sarah - go check out what everyone else is dancing about.
