No fabric in or out this week. All the fabric for the top I finished came from the recipient.
I spent last night making decisions on the backing, quilting design and thread for the memory quilt. I haven’t worked out the binding yet. I want a good quality fabric for the binding, something with give and not too much bulk. I’ll look through the bag again, but I don’t think anything I have fits the bill. I may end up using my fabric instead. It’s really a substance over form decision, choosing durability over making the top entirely from the deceased’s fabrics.
I also picked a border fabric for my sister’s embroidered piece. Here it is mocked-up on a bulletin board.
I pulled out all my Christmas fabrics and auditioned at least a dozen. I had quite a few more than that, which is embarrassing because I have no plans to make a Christmas quilt. I just like Christmas fabric. The bad thing about buying that way is most of the fabrics don’t go together. There may be multiple Christmas quilts in my future.
