|This is "use what ya got" photography...I threw the quilt top over the fence and just hoped it would not slide down before I took the photo! Sure would have looked better if I had ironed it first and done a better job of draping on bottom!|
|I fussy cut the center square but the points we just cut willy nilly.|
|I also cut the toile in the second round particularly and lined up my blocks so the there is a definite top and bottom to the quilt. I wanted there to be some continuity in the toile so that you could see the pattern.|
Quilty sister, Julie, and I went back to Burkholder's yesterday. I picked up the rest of the red tonal bolt because I love the color and also found some fabric to make a purse that all the women in our group are going to make. I chose fabric that is very retro - think "1969 Haight-Ashbury hippie dippy love child". I love the fabric. It may lead to an entire upheaval of my wardrobe. Next thing you know I will stop shaving my legs, make 10 or 12 maxi dresses, throw on a pair of flip flops and bake a batch of brownies...
