WIP: Flimsy Edition.

I finished this quilt top yesterday, and I was all set to start quilting, until I realized I had neglected to pick up batting! (Oops.) This quilt will be for my friend Val, who had a very specific idea of what she wanted, and because she paid for the fabric I love her so much, I didn't completely refuse her input, though I will confess that I did a few things differently than our "plan". She wants straight line quilting, so that's what I'll be doing! Though this is the first time I think I'll have to mark my lines. The top currently measures about 45" x 60", and she's very excited about it, so I better pick up some batting, and soon! 

I'm linking up today with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Oh the things we do for our friends! I just saw Sissy Love in the tag line. Is this the fabric ya'll picked out on your trip?!

  2. It has the mesh from Oink-A-Doodle-Moo in it! I am seriously in love with all the colours that comes in. I've never made a quilt where someone else had input in the design. Scary, but exciting, times! :)

  3. Lovely architecture in this quilt! Very interesting. Have fun quilting and thanks for stopping by my blog.

    1. Thanks, Mary! My friend found a design she liked, and come to find out, it was a quilt back made using the scraps from the front! But I couldn't talk her into anything else, so quilt-back-for-a-front it is! :)

  4. That is so funny. Quilt backs are sometimes my favorite part too...


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
