Monday

I'm beginning my week with a FINISH!

A very. simple. finish.

This little quilt began with these two fabrics
found in the remnant pile at a VERY reduced price.

I liked that little print...
but wondered how I would add some color!!!!

GREEN was the answer.

I used ONLY what I could find in my stash.
It worked!

I'm sure I would NEVER have chosen that backing
 IF I had been shopping!
BUT....
since I didn't want to go shopping....
I found something that worked...
and....
I think it gives this quilt even MORE color!

The front of this quilt is nice soft flannel.
The backing is cotton.
Sometimes if you use ALL flannel
 the quilt becomes TOO Heavy and warm.


Ingredients for this quilt:

sixteen squares of fun fabric: 7"x7"
forty strips for sashing:  3"x7"
twenty five cornerstones:  3"x3"

Put it all together!

Baby quilt measures about 39"x39"

    This afternoon I just finished cutting two trail blocks from one of you tutorials. I lost the date but it is the block that looks like rays. I like it. I'm doing it in batiks.
