I was hoping to finish piecing this top for "Finished for Friday" but I missed the deadline by about 5 minutes last night! Now it's Saturday & here is a photo, the top has finished larger than I expected, 78 x 100.
It's very pretty I think, eye catching & very feminine. These were stash fabrics but I may have to purchase backing, it's too pretty to just use a make- do fabric for backing when I don't have anything that even faintly "goes with it"! It won't be quilted for a while, there are too many tops in the line ahead of it!
This morning early I took off to the Bernina Connection's Early Bird sale. I had gift cards & I bought all but one little half yd. piece at 75% off so absolutely no guilt, lol!
A few of these purchases I will share with others, some cowboy fabric and some other for my secret sister at the CO. guild.
Here are a few of the fabrics that found their way home with me......just a few of them......they followed me......fair dinkum!
A couple of nice Asians for my collection......
These flamingos were just too cute.......
and more flamingos, it would make really cute aprons don't you think but I need to find some black with a pink dot for the ruffles. I think I will take another photo, the flash washed out the color it looks boring when it's actually pink flamingos.
This one came with me just because it caught my eye & because I make patriotic quilts for QOV it would work into a patriotic colored quilt.
The above I will most likely give away, they are from a collection called "Rosie the Quilter" by Andover fabrics based of course on the idea of Rosie the Riveter. It comes in pink too, I already have that in my stash,
& it's staying with me because the past year I have suddenly become very attracted to pink, go figure why now at my age, aren't I supposed to be doing the "purple dress with the red hat that doesn't match" thing?!
Nah, can't do it, my family would freak if I dressed like that they might actually commit me they would be so horrified!
Once, a friend of youngest DS told me "You don't look like a quilter....."? How is a quilter supposed to look ?
