My world, my life, my thoughts...my way. I'm a longarm quilter who has an older fabric stash that i am trying to use up. I particularly like selvage quilting and strip and crumb blocks. Life in the country is a never ending education.

I Spy Flannel
Trying to get smaller quilts finished up to take to the flea market. this I Spy was pieced September, 2015. All sashings and borders are flannel.
It is 48x54" I used a wavy line for the border and a wavy X for the blocks.
I was using up some novelty fabrics to make this. made 9 patches for the corners to have enough blocks.
Back is black but camera doesn't show it well. it is a throw that i picked up at a thrift store. it is soft and 'furry'...kind of like minky. I did not put a batting in this one...i think the back was thick enough that it didn't need it. Thread really sunk into the back fabric and really doesn't show much.
Top thread was a So Fine gray; bobbin was a Poly Quilter variegated from Superior. This brown fabric was the binding.
It feels pretty snuggly, so hope someone likes it.
