I could probably make 25 charity quilts with what's left of these blues and teals, but that's not likely to happen. I may make a few, but they will be a very simple pattern, such as nine patch or rail fence.
I will have to buy fabric to back this quilt. I suppose I could piece the back, but my pieces are mostly quarter yard scraps and I want the back to look nice, since this will be a gift. I do have a large enough piece for the binding. I plan to make a pillow or two out of the left over triangles (yes, there are left-over triangles). I think this would look very pretty at the end of a bed or as a snuggle up quilt on the back of a couch.
So ye of little faith who said this would be a UFO, I am a finisher (well, most of the time). I hope to quilt this on my Sweet Sixteen if I can get it to behave. I ordered a pretty variegated thread from Superior Thread and will start the quilting this week. Stay tuned.
I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
