Do you remember this:
It was one of my all time best Explore pics...and my latest swap placemat to Terrie. Well, because I was so inspired with everyone's cross quilts on flickr and then eventually making that placemat, that I just couldn't quit. I HAD to make a big one for me too and since I already had so many reds and off whites, I just continued in a bigger vein.
And then the trimming process: (I just love seeing all those fabrics all smushed together. it makes for such a fab pic! No fair yelling at me for dumping those bigger pieces!!)
I just got it back from the quilter on Thursday and bound it right away. I ALWAYS have my bindings ready to go right after I finish a bigger quilt since I know I'll be involved in another project later and would hate to stop to decide what to put on something I already did once I got it back. That's just me though.....
And the back.......see the tiny one on the bottom right? That piece was left from the placemat, so I just appliqued it right on there! Cool, huh?
