A trip to Geelong for a family party enabled me to do some fabric (and Christmas) shopping. I got this super cute Jodie Carlton designed sea gull fabric as the backing for my Modern Plus quilt. I made the backing and binding all in one day.
On the same trip I got this nice rust paisley print for the backing of my maple leaf quilt. I fancied red, to bring out the red, rather then the brown accents of this quilt. But after the major colour run I had previously with red and white Dresden I am avoid reds! Bedsides I was shopping in the sales racks, so colours were limited, although there were lots of brown options!
My friend Lisa has been trying to fit in half an hour of sewing here and there. I have done the same, but chosen to dedicate a few minutes a day to making berries! I think I have enough now for the border on my Warm Regards...but kept loosing count, so gave up!
Definitely need more leaves. But the biggest hold up with this project is no border fabric. My trip to Geelong did not reveal anything suitable as Bellarine Sewing Centre has dedicated most of their stock to modern and brights. So waiting for a opportunity to travel somewhere a bit different and see what I can find.
Happy quilting Sue.
