But the top is done!
I used all vintage fabrics, mostly scraps.
The yardage I had was only 36" wide so had to piece some strips to get longer lengths. But it all worked out. I know what fabrics I'm putting on the back and one is cheater cloth that was made into a skirt. Just need to remove the elastic and casing at the waistband and rip out one seam. I think it'll be just fine :)
I usually quilt in the evenings and started with the eagle in my Flags quilt.
The echo quilting lines are 1/4" apart.
But there was a lot of space near the wings so I drew in a star and a curve from a plastic template I had from years ago.
The center is now done and I'm moving on to the stars :)
When Lori at Humble Quilts mentioned the Year of the Rooster Challenge sponsored by Two Thimbles Quilt Shop, I decided to order this special Chinese take-out. What fun! Clever packaging, don't you think? My little quilt is done but you'll have to wait a couple of weeks when it's time to link up with Lori.
On another note check out a favorite NJ quilt on Barbara B's blog here.
Have a great week!
