I had a gift card and decided to buy some backing for my Grand Illusion quilt top. Needless to say I had a bunch of options in my stash but they'd all have to be pieced so I decided if I was going to piece I might have well have it all match.
Ordered online as there was zero locally. It's from a collection called The Painted Garden by Dena Fishbein. I seem to like her designs as I kept choosing her fabric wherever I surfed. I'm pleased with it, and the price of $5.99/yard was another selling point. The colors are perfect, at least to me, now to get it sewn together. I'm still undecided as to whether I want to wrestle with this on my DSM or not. I washed/dried it even though the top fabrics were not pre-washed. I like to do that with the backing because of the large size and shrinkage with one piece versus small two-inch pieces.
I joined the Block Lotto site the end of last year and have been having fun participating in that.
I was one of the winners last month for a collection of Double 9-Patch blocks. More on those when I receive them in the mail.
The maximum number of blocks to make varies each month. The block for February is an arrow block. I made them over the weekend. I'd love a whole quilt with them!
I was going to stop at two but kept going for a full set,
Thanks for stopping by, what have you been busy with?
