I am moving along with my French braid quilt, and decided to tackle the backing this weekend. The instructions in the book had us cut way too many strips for the quilt. So, I wanted to use up those strips for the back. I got out my EQ and designed my first quilt. This is the plan.
Because I’m just learning EQ, it’s not exactly how the quilt will look. But it’s close enough to what I envisioned in my mind. The background will be plain white fabric, and you’ll probably see a bit more of a white border than what the picture is showing. The binding is the red stripe fabric that I used on the front of the quilt, which I will cut on the bias so the stripes are at a 45 degree angle.
I got the 2 strip sets done this weekend. Other than the plain white fabric, which I purchased, everything else will be scraps from the front of the quilt.
Well, I’m off to make some Finnish pasties, which I love to make and put lots of extras in the freezer for those nights when I just don’t feel like cooking. I will be taking next Wednesday off so that I can have a long 5 day holiday weekend. Can’t wait for that!
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
Thanks for stopping by.
