Instead I cut as many circles as I could from the hand marbleized fabrics I had made many years ago. The solid colors were mostly my mother's from the 1960s but check out the polka dots below . . .
In 1965 (!) I made this blouse and had saved the leftovers and scraps. Would you believe there was enough fabric to cut strips for the first border? I was 22 at the time and my son was 2-1/2.
Not wanting to buy any fabric to finish this top, I had a piece of blue / pink
chintz that seemed to carry the circle theme and worked just fine. I'm calling this quilt "Marbles" because I loved playing with marbles when I was little :)
I published my 2019 blog book at Blog2Print.com. Now I have 6 years' worth.
The printed photos are true to color and that makes me very happy.
My current evening project is quilting Dear Daughter. I got carried away with this block and decided I went way overboard! So now I'm doing 1/2" crosshatch in the others :)
Enjoy the rest of your week!
