Flimsy done & Backing Chosen

 
 
F
Hands 2 Help flimsy sewn. It's going to the cancer charity... you know why.

Backing washed and ironed (and since has been sewn)... that may be the quilting thread for the bottom. Still thinking about the top thread. Black or White?
 
Edited: I used orange to quilt. The above fabric has a  metallic thread that runs through, and it's not soft. I decided to use a soft fabric for someone who has cancer. They sure don't need any more of life's little irritations. The backing is light blue with white polka dots, and it much softer.
 
Starting tonight with the basting.

  2. The top turned out really cute! Have fun finishing it. I'm off to paint a bathroom. I'm still behind on stitching (I have a deadline of Monday on one project, bad me).

  4. What fun that is!! I love all the different fabrics, this is certain to warm someones heart! I had quite a few colors in my quilts as well, it's not easy to decide on thread color when they all look so different!! I did a dark tan on one and grey on the other. Can't wait to see yours quilted.

  8. Wow, you're moving right along. I didn't even see the b&w hourglasses until Sarah mentioned it. So adorable. I'm looking forward to joining the H2H next time. Someone is going to love that lovely quilt.

  9. Beautiful work Terri and for such a good cause. The colours are so uplifting. I hope it gives someone the energy they need. I would use a pale top thread just in case of some thread pull through to the back.

  11. Beautiful top. I love how you alternated the corners of the blocks which gave you those hourglasses.
