My First Leaders and Enders Project
Well the top is done, now trying to decide on a backing. I wanted to do a Minky backing, but I'm pretty sure Minky only comes 60 inches wide .... about 10" too short for this job.
Since this picture, I've added a 4 inch white border all around to give it a more modern feel.
There's a fair amount of "ugly" scraps in those 9-patches, but the overall effect is not nearly so ugly :)

54" X 66"
Another shot at reducing my stash ... this time it was hard to finish. Difficult to find the eagerness to sew when the colours are not that cheerful. Now that it's done, I do like it. It will be a charity quilt next Christmas for a senior's gift drive in our area.
Machine quilted with straight lines.
The backing from extra stars and bits.
