Sometimes a girl just has to sew!
I had some fabric left over from another quilt:
This is the back of a project that I can’t show just yet. The fabric was in a pile received when a family cleaned out their mother’s sewing room and donated most of her stash. I decided to use the leftovers in a rail fence quilt, 2.5” strips, 6 inch blocks. A little figuring showed that I could set aside enough for borders and use the remainder for the strips.
Needed something to go with it, and I came up with these:
These were chosen not because they were the BEST fabrics to go with the feature fabric, but because they would work, they had been waiting a long time to be used and there was enough of each one. The two on the right are both recycled garments. I spent some time picking out the darts on the flowered shirt.
Here are the blocks on the wall:
I’m thinking a narrow dark border, perhaps navy or brown, before adding the print. This will work out to the right size for a prayer quilt, so it will be donated to the quilting group at church. And before that I can use it as a sample for a beginner’s quilting class coming up soon.
