On the Design Wall: Stripes!
I need a back for my Circa 50 quilt for the Fat Quarterly Quilt Along. I have a lot of white, but that seemed to plain for this quilt. I had some extra Circa 50, but I kept leaning towards a patchwork pattern and that was too similar to the front. I had extra Kona solids too. Hmmm... I opened up the solids and laid them out on the table. Aha... Yes! Stripes! Stripes are going to be just right. And so as I write this... I have stripes on the wall. They make me smile.
They vary in height some are 2.5" and some are 6". They are so crisp and cheery. I love them. : ) Now I'm off to the store for batting. Joann's sent me a 50% coupon. Yipeee.
