11th finish for 2013

Yeah! Justin's quilt is done!

Here are some detail shots of the back. I cut the labels from the shirts and added them to the back. I will post a picture next week of Justin holding his quilt. I will be giving it to him on Friday.

No rest for the wicked so what is my next project? A flannel quilt for my youngest sister. She wants it to be pink and lavender - YUCK! I have been collecting flannels, but it was hard to find flannel in those two colors that went together as far as I was concerned. I dug the fabric out this morning.

I decided to dig thru my flannel bin to see if there was anything with those colors and I found these scraps.

I thought to myself what am I going to make with this butt ugly fabric! I decided that I am going to make a zig zag quilt. I think you can use any ugly fabric in a zig zag quilt as long as it is counteracted with a consistent fabric. My consistent fabric will be the solid darker pink fabric in the first picture at the upper left corner. I bought lots of that pink fabric with the lavender blotches which I will use for a stripe or two and then for the back. Now I just need to get this done by xmas.

Justin's quilt looks great. I'm sure he will love it.

You are right you can do a zig zag successfully in any fabric grouping.

Absolutely love Justin 's quilts! I'm not particularly moved by pink and lavender so I wish you well on that one.
