I've been working on something...
I mentioned my special fabric.
And my fabric cutting anxiety.
But I finally made a plan I was happy with. Want to see?
The blocks finished at 7.5".
So the quilt top looks like this.
The blue is not quite that vibrant IRL, but it does pop out from the other colors.
I had a larger piece of the red tone-on-tone snowflake material for backing, but when I decided to use it for the "ribbons", I needed something else for borders and backing. (Hello Joann Fabric.)
I like the polka dots, though. I think it works with the Mary Englebreit fabric.
I love the irregularity of the dots... looks like snow.
So I bought some black and used it for the backing, too!
And a few of the leftover scraps.
The picture is a bit fuzzy, but I really love how this came out!
Doesn't it feel like a snowy night?
(Okay, I know it's June, but try!)
And, in even better news... Wyatt's soccer coach is a professional quilter and I'm going to have her quilt it for me. Woo-hoo! I'd never priced out having someone else do the quilting, and when I found out how reasonable she is, it was a no-brainer.
Finished pics later...
