If you haven't seen it yet, Lori at Humble Quilts has been hosting another of her fabulous little quilt-a-longs, and the linky party is now up and open for another few days if you want to join in!
Lori announced this quilt-a-long while we were vacationing in Oregon, so I've gotten a very late start. I did get a start though, finding the super cheddar fabric that grounds my little entry, plus a couple of blue fat quarters that were quickly turned into some of the blocks. I dug deep in my stash the other day to find the remaining fabrics, there are at least three fabrics that first appeared in my son's college quilt, begun well over twenty years ago! Here's my completed flimsy.
I haven't used a lot of cheddar in the past, but oh-my-gosh, how I love this one! The actual color is deeper than what I'm seeing on my monitor, but my camera wants to read it as yellow rather than cheddar. I especially like it combined with the black-cheddar print I found in my fat quarter stash.
I'm planning to hand quilt this, and know it won't be completed until well after the linky party closes so I'll just enter this as a completed top. With the borders this top finished at 26 1/4 inches. Still pondering a backing fabric, looks like I'll be digging deep in the stash yet again.
This was such a delight to make, a fun change of pace between all the bed-size quilts I've been working on of late. Thanks Lori for hosting yet another fabulous quilt-a-long!
