This is NOT my usual fabric style.
Honestly, it’s not!
This is a piece of backing fabric that arrived a few days ago while I was up at Quilt Villa --
It’s a special order for a special quilt.
My mom has the biggest heart ever. And when she FINALLY took to quilting, there was no stopping the woman, she can quilt circles around me! ((Her hexies have gone rampant and she even out hexies me!))
When I was in Idaho in May, she gave me a quilt top that she had made, as a gift for The Hubster because he breathes Boise State Broncos, and bleeds blue and orange.
When we were getting the new roof on our house a couple of years ago he had threatened to do the shingles blue and orange!
Guess who’s license plate THIS is:
Yeah, it's like that around here!
At any rate, I told mom not to finish the quilt, that I could get it quilted for her, and there was room for just the top in my luggage ---and I came home with this:
Mom’s up-do on my Denim Rails pattern from Scraps & Shirttails!
She has also gone nuts with the string piecing, and having so much fun with it.
Yes, the large orange squares are DENIM too! Where she found orange denim, I have no idea..probably a thrift store!
Like Mother, Like Daughter!
You can see where she has inserted little crumb blocks as well!
Denim doesn’t scare the girl!
Blue & Orange all the way!
So this little quilt ((It’s really not that little, it’s a good couch size!)) is in line for quilting and binding during my holiday break time.
I guess there is no delaying it farther…since the backing fabric is HERE.
What else can I say but ----
I’ve spent ALL AFTERNOON working on something extra special for tomorrow morning’s blog post and it is ready to go live when I leave for San Diego!
Don’t forget to come look for it! It will knock your socks off!
I’m off to go pack up the trunk show and my suitcase and get to bed early ---Night!
