Aren’t These Cute August 21, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Before Bonnie left for Bali, she announced the new Leader/Ender challenge. Three inch spools. I didn’t participate in last year’s bowties. I’m not sure what I was working on at the time — maybe the log cabin blocks? Anyway, yesterday I pulled out my 1 1/2″ strip boxes and cut the needed pieces for 8 blocks. So far I’ve finished three working on the backing for Carolina Christmas.
Originally, I planned to use a blue and white 30’s print, but I needed at least another 1/2 yard. I’m sure I could have stretched it enough to loaded the quilt top to bottom, but I want to load it sideways.
I dug through my orphan block box and found 7 leftover Carolina Christmas blocks. Then I dug through the stash I found these four fabrics plus one more not shown. I think it’s going to be a cute backing — once I fix the pink strips.
