The fabric I chose for the background actually ended up being in the package of strips.....
....so I had to replace it with something else. That wasn't too difficult. There are zillions of beautiful batiks out there from which to choose!
I began working on this project at a retreat I went to in November, where I only ended up making four blocks! I guess I needed to visit with friends more than I needed to get something done!
Sewing strip sets together is one of the most boring parts of sewing.
After getting the strip sets finished and sub-cutting them I finally got to sew actual blocks together!
I am an "iron the seams open" kind of girl.
The bedspreads were finished and mailed off to my friend Angela for quilting less than 2 months after I started. I must be feeling motivated.
I am so happy with the way these spreads are turning out that I am thinking about making something else just for us. Maybe a throw for the living room or a king-size spread for our room. The question is........stash?? or shopping??
