There’s all these link-ups on Fridays for “Finished” items, but I have no finished items to share. Boo.
However, I did finish a step in the construction of my Aspen Frost…table cover/runner/mini quilt…thing. (What am I going to call this?) Hee hee, chevrons make me smile.
I’m thinking that I’m going to do a minimally-pieced backing instead of just one fabric. I love the aqua blue in the Aspen Frost fabric collection, and so I’m going to try to get some yardage. Then, after using the chevron side during the Christmas season, I can flip it over and enjoy the very appropriate winter hue during January. It will be quilted with red, green, white, and blue thread…but I think it will work.
Or I could go with a plain color back and just let the quilting shine on the other side. So many options. I’ve never done a pieced back before, and I totally love the look of the ones I’m seeing in Elizabeth Hartman’s The Practical Guide to Patchwork, and would like to give it a try.
Decision, decisions…what do you think?
Oh, hey, look at that, a “Finishing” link-up that doesn’t require a fully-finished object. Awesome! I’m linking up with the Link-A-Finish Friday @ Richard and Tanya Quilts.
