After I finished the Friendship Triangles quilt I started thinking about my next quilt, I pulled out the fabric and pattern...hmmm, fabric won't work with this pattern, need a different pattern...found a new pattern...No, can't start a new quilt until the Friendship quilt is quilted...thought I had back fabric for it already...hmmm, I have a lot of back fabrics (I keep large amounts of fabric on the cardboard bolt thingies) I should make up the backs and put them with the appropriate quilt so everything will be together...hmmm, don't like the back fabric I had for the Friendship quilt...actually I like it too much to put it on a back I'd rather have it on the front as a focal fabric I wonder if I have any fabrics in my stash that will go with it...I could piece a back out of my scrap flannels....pulled out the bin with the scrap flannels...there's a lot of scraps in this bin...Ohhhh, Mary of NeedledMom is so nice she sent me the paper piece patterns she used for her place mats....love the place mats I think I want to make them in pink...no, focus, you need a back for the Friendship quilt...hmmm, what quilt did these two back fabrics go to? well I know this fabric goes with this quilt so I'll put the fabric and quilt next the sewing machine...how much yardage of this fabric do I have? is it enough for the Hot Pocket quilt?...no, I got the flannels out I should do something with them first.
See what I mean...I've been going in this circle for the last 3 days.
Most of my quilts have flannel on the back, so I ended up with all of these really long pieces of different widths. I cleaned up the edges some. I have an idea on how to put these together to make a back.
I also cut out a Turning Twenty quilt (okay, half the fabrics where already cut must have been a past QADS outbreak).
I do have some yardage that I didn't cut up.
Cut some 2.5 inch strips, 10.5 inch squares and some 6.5 inch squares.
Still have a little more in the bin to go through.
Now I have this pile of pieces and parts. I am NOT going to make a flannel scrap quilt.
Anybody want the pieces and parts?
Shoot, I still don't have a back for the Friendship Triangles quilt...maybe I should go shopping...
How did my sewing room get to be such a mess?
