A Quilt on The Way!


Okay, I chose the next quilt to go to Carol the long armed quilter!! This is my 1" postage stamp quilt. I am showing it laying on the batting, so I hope you can see that the quilt ends with colored squares. Part of me would like to make this quilt larger, but it is amazing the weight already with all that thread! These are all floral squares. It will be a good lap quilt, or wall quilt sized for spring since it is so pink! Loved using up all those 1 1/2" strips I had been saving.
Now that I have my backing and batting out, I might just package up a few more. For those of you who don't know, I always use a plain neutral flannel on my quilt backs. I buy the wide, so my backs are one piece. And most important, require no further sewing to create it!! I do sew some of the remnants together to make another back, but that's it.
Rain, wind, dark skies today. Ethan and I have spent a lot of the day just cuddling, and he is taking a siesta now, so I need to get him up so we can go and meet Jillian's bus.

Wow, Sharon. That's a LOT of itty bitty pieces! I imagine you stripped pieced...but still! So pretty and nicely done.
Felt backings are so cozy.

Amazing quilt - such tiny pieces. I like the way you pieced the lighter colored inner border too.

Love this quilt! I know it's not easy matching up those strips. I made a triple irish chain and the most difficult thing was to match up the strips. Great job!!!!!!
