I have no time frame- just this year for sure. I have started and I will list some for sale on Etsy. Most will go into my shops.
Here is the first one I made this week. I still can't decide on a backing. Do I go with the pink (it is a Hoffman Raspberry Batik) or the Black Kona? I have no idea where I bought the White and Black Flannel fabric and I have no more of that.
What do you think? Black tends to collect lint, so I am leaning towards the Raspberry.... and then binding it in the Black Kona. I have a 3 inch border in the Black Kona on it. Done it will be about 42 by 50 inches. A small lap.
I am pretty much taking my big pieces of fabrics-- the 5 to 7 yard pieces and they are my backings with some for the front and creating from there. I am really not a scrappy type quilter. It is so hard for me to make a scrap quilt, but I am going to try. I have EQ7, so I design a lot in that and find other ideas on line and I own about 30 quilt books, and even more quilt magazines. And as always, I am trying to shop in my own supply before I go to the fabric store. But this Raspberry is new because with all my fabrics- I just do not have Pinks or Roses! (go figure).
I have already started #2 and in my head am planning #3.
