I was thinking the other day that I haven’t quilted ANY quilts for myself yet this year, so I have to fix that. Yesterday our guild had a UFO day and I brought the blocks above, they are to make a Hugs and Kisses quilt by Jaybird. I used one of the fabric fat quarter collections I won at our guild’s xmas party last year, Terrain. Very modern colors, not my normal taste but I really enjoy working with different fabrics and colors, it’s good to get out of your box once in awhile.
I was able to put the top together at the UFO day and when I got home and started to search for a backing I remembered I had the perfect fabric.
Can you believe this bright orange flannel was in my small stash and I had the right amount! It was going to be a backing for a Wheel of Mystery quilt that I did in bright colors but I changed on my mind and didn’t use it on that quilt. I knew it would come in handy one day and 5 years later it did! Good thing fabric doesn’t go bad :)
No time to quilt this one now BUT I do have my Mod Pop quilt in my machine so I will get one of my own quilts quilted this month. I have the background quilted just not sure how to handled the darker curved designs…hope to figure it out later today so I can share that one with you.
