    Made fabric selection. First quilt. 9 patch. Material reminds me of Mom

    Went to Whittle's today with DW. Spent $24.65 (thank you honey for your gift) on three fabrics I, in my newness think will complement each other. Looking through the fabrics, I was drawn to those that reminded me of Mama and Daddy when I was young, back in the early 1960's. Green for border and sashes. The fine flower pattern has just a touch of green which I think will be brought out by the sash, and the larger flowers have a little green and a buff background I think will go nicely. The purple flowers are there because.....because..... heck. Just 'cause I like em. And It's my quilt.
    $3.50 per yd x 2.5
    $2.30 per yd X 2.5

    Still need to decide on binding and backing. Will be using heirloom batting (in stock in the stash)
    WooHoo!! I'm ready to roll tomorrow. Don

    Make sure you share a picture of your quilt when you finish it. Better yet, share pictures as you begin it. Sounds like fun.

    I can't wait to see it completed. May I suggest a purple binding?
