I finally finished my Elephant Parade quilt top! Can I get a WOO-HOO !!!!
A huge shout-out to Kelly, who saw my plea for more blue background on Pat Sloan's Facebook page, and sent me some that she had bought!
It's the top and two side sashings of the blue background, that was all I had to finish, but I was completely out of it. And after searching and searching, it turns out Joann had discontinued the color. Kelly had a different brand, but it was named the same color name, and sent it to me. You can't even tell the difference! Thanks so much to Kelly!
Tonight I did a lot of pressing fabric for quilt backings, measuring and marking centers.
I got pieces cut for piecing together two different backings. That's a lot of fabric!
Backing for Elephant Parade.
Backing for Sunnyside ModaLove.
I am all about getting prep work finished at once. That way, when I'm ready to start, I just pick up the pieces and put them together. In this case, it's quilt top + backing = layer and baste a quilt together. (All right, so I admit that I still need to cut batting too.)
I finished the back of Elephant Parade too! I found cute elephant flannel at Joann and Walmart.
Linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts!
