As you know, most of my summer was spent in the process of moving from our old farmhouse to our new to us home 2 miles away. When I opened the 'to be quilted' closet and looked at those quilt flimsies, I decided I would 'move' some of them to Lori to be long arm quilted. I took 5 quilt tops to her in August and told her not to return them until after we've moved.
She delivered the quilts several weeks ago because she wanted to see the house. Four of the quilts have been bound and washed so the next several posts will be about the finishes.
The first quilt is the Flower Patch Mystery SAL which Denise organized.
This quilt has traveled back to Phoenix with our daughter. The batting is a lightweight polyester batting, you don't need heavy quilts in Phoenix!
I think the cardinals make the quilt look Christmasy so I used this silver Christmas fabric for backing.
My mother must have bought the whole bolt of this silver poinsettia Hoffman fabric. I've been using it for years and I think this is the last of it but who knows, there may be some lurking in a tub somewhere.
