I have had the backing for some time, snagged in the Sew Sisters Quilt Shop clearance section, which, btw is pretty fantastic. It's Windham Fabrics "Farm Chic" by Kate McRostie.
Then, this past winter I discovered the farm animals in various yoga poses, "Willow Creek" for elizabeth's studio, so of course, I had to snag a little of that to incorporate into the back as well as some other fun future project!
Besides the OMG goal, I have a personal goal to be caught up on my 150 Canadian Women QAL as well as my three RSC projects which have been sadly neglected since leaving Florida. I did work a bit on green, which was May's colour, for project #3:
|Trying to bring a bit of order to a scrap vortex-looking quilt by doing the opposing corners in fabrics that read solid; multi-coloured ones are going down the centre, framed in black strips.|
And project #2:
I didn't do any April multi-colour blocks/rows for any of the three projects since I just want the rainbow effect; however, my multi-colour scrap challenge was fulfilled when I did the Welcome to Canada quilt.
This is just one example of why things are moving at a snail's pace in the sewing department of late:
A few days later, I pulled the shoe rack out to move this shelf in its place, and what did I spy? Fabric pieces. WTH... Emit another massive sigh... That shelf didn't end up there; it's in another place. Yes, I will be giving you a tour of progress up here one of these days.
