It's a flimsy!
54 x 78
Baby it's cold outside!! I'm not going out there. I don't have anywhere to take good photos of a big quilt top except outside hanging on a clothesline so you only get to see a snippet of the whole top for now.
The six inch Friendship Stars in homespuns and muslin were blocks from a really, really old swap. I recently dug this UFO out of storage and made some nine patches in homespuns and muslin for an alternate block. Rather than make a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt I made some of the units she gave as clues to move my UFOs forward. And that's why I made all these nine patches.
One of the many reasons I don't get quilts completed is because I am out of batting or I need to piece together some batting. Another reason is because I don't have a back ready. This year I'm going to try to get a back ready at the same time I finish a top. So, here is the backing - a plaid thrift store sheet that is just the right size. I think I have a little bit of batting left on a roll. I might even get this pin basted this week.
I even know what I'm going to do with the leftover homespun fabrics that have been around here for years. By year end I hope they are all used up and my sewing room has one less box of fabrics.
This will make a nice donation quilt for a guy if my husband doesn't take it to replace the one in his recliner that he thinks is getting worn out. But it's a little short for his long legs.
