I read a tip on here to put fabric tape in strips on the back. (The kind you use for bandages) works for me.
Your scrappy quilts are so well done they look like magazine photos. Truly beautiful quilts!
Love, love, love, the bright colors! It's a beautiful quilt.
I love the colors and design of your baby quilt. Making it large enough for siblings to get near the baby is a great idea, a realistic plan ahead for the way a family will use your quilt.
I'm sorry for the loss of your elderly friend. I also lost a friend who was 94 years old. She was a wonderful friend despite age difference, a lifetime well lived and passed on family wisdom and a history of life in the US before the modern age.
I have an adjustable office chair on wheels, I like that it is adjustable and I can easily roll it out of the way, BUT when I lean forward the tiniest bit it rolls back, seems like I am always scooting forward! Grrrr! I wonder if someone makes one that the wheels lock when it is sat upon?
I must admit I like "controlled" scrappy, like yours. Love them both, the orange colors are striking!
I'd say the "Tossed 9 Patch" is as easy and quick as they come. Google for a free description and pattern. Mostly you make a 9 patch block, then cut it in half (both top to bottom and the side to side), flip a couple of pieces around the other direction and sew them back together. Simple, qquick, not a lot of brain power used up.
