Sixteen-Patch backing made

Today was my day off, and I decided right out of bed that today was the day that I RE-ENTERED my sewing room !

Woo hoo !   I got an idea for making a backing for the sixteen-patch top, and went right to work on it.  I had already put together enough extra blocks to widen a 42-inch piece of fabric so that it would be wide enough to extend a couple of inches past the top on all sides.  This 'ugly' fabric was my beginning inspiration when I first went through the box of fabrics that JoAnn sent to me.


Blessedly, I also found, in that box, a gold-colored fabric that would work (it's only going to show for a couple of inches at the top and bottom of the back of the quilt), so, it didn't take me long to cut and piece it all together.

I spent the remainder of the afternoon getting a haircut (DON'T ASK !!!!!!!!!), and getting the backyard mowed.  After that, I was ready for ANOTHER shower and some recliner/t.v time.

  1. I'm loving that ugly quilt...looks like something my grandmother would have made (she never wasted a scrap of fabric or a piece of yarn). I'm glad that you had time to sew!

    Now, about the haircut????
