Quilts in Waiting!




Five of these six quits were layered today.


I usually, but not always, try to make a backing for a quilt as soon as I finish pieceing the top. Sometimes I go ahead and make the binding too if I know what I am going to use. A couple of the quilts pictured here had to wait until I found an appropriate backing fabric. The one with the light colored backing is a Dresden Plate that I finished late last year. I had been looking for a light colored fabric for it and finally found something last week.

The one above it is a two-sided quilt and the one below is a flannel backing for a quilt called Fractured.

The blue is an Arrow Star and the red is a one piece quilt to be donated to Safe Child.

On top is a Crown of Thorns wall hanging that has been waiting and waiting for quilting.

Now for some quilting!

So enjoy reading about the quilts and the finding of the right fabric to compliment each one.
