I’ve begun working on a new quilt which is a nice way of saying I sat down and bought fabric for the quilt.
Personally, I wanted to see if the fabrics I selected would look good together so through photoshop magic I swapped out the blue and green colors in the original quilt for the teal and lavender fabrics I selected.
Not too shabby.
Then I found 108” wide fabric for the backing with a BEAUTIFUL watercolor floral pattern in blues and purples and I WAS SOLD.
The fabric is PERFECT for the backing of the quilt and requires no sewing on my part since it’s 108” wide.
It also ties in all the colors quite nicely and will make a good contrast against the pieced side of the quilt.
Honestly, I’m so excited about working on this quilt.
My least favorite part is cutting the fabric, and I can already tell that’s going to take the LONGEST time with this quilt.
For Barbara’s quilt, it took me 6 hours to cut all the fabric.
This time, I’m guessing it’ll be about 9 hours.
Who knows, maybe I’ll get lucky and find a short cut.
But you know I’m in a domestic mood when talking about “getting lucky” means the quilt I’m working on will take only 9 hours to cut.
This is my boring crafty quilting life.
