I used a dark red fabric with a very fine black stripe as the binding. I love the way those Tumbling Blocks pop!
There are lots of favorite fabrics in this quilt. The red/white "I Pledge Allegiance" is one, the brown and pink toile is another. The golfer fabric in the star was a freebie at a guild meeting. I don't golf but the scale and size were right, lol!
See the yellow/red Ely & Walker calico? When we bought our house in 1971 that fabric was a kitchen curtain left by the previous owner. The red/yellow Provincial stripe was a gift from fellow-blogger Vivian when we were making stars for Barbara B's Stars In A Time Warp QAL.
The dress form fabric reminds me of all the sewing I did as the family seamstress so many years ago.
And the blue star with little doggies around the edges was made by my dear friend Rachel :)
This is the fabric I put on the back. Thank you, Susan! Barbie Vanderfleet-Martin did the quilting for me in a very pretty floral/leafy pattern which you can see when you click on the photo.
I'm a little behind making my Westering Women blocks but did manage to finish #10 Rocky Mountain Chain. I followed the color combination Becky Brown did for Barbara B's blog. Thanks, Becky!
