These are the fabrics I have decided to use to make the lap quilt designed by Maree….

and I thought I might use ‘sandcastle’ (which is a quilted fabric) as the background..

here it is Monday again..hope you have a happy one….

Take Care Peg…

Quilt 'til you wilt.

  9. Dear Peg, the fabrics look lovely (as usual!). I've finally found a way to use all your quotes! You know I love them, right? So, now I'm stitching them! If I need a quick gift, someone needing a pick-me-up or just a laugh, I just put it in a cheap frame and voila, happiness is served! So far, the grandmothers are just... have been stitched in Dutch and Turkish. This one I think I'll keep for me! Thank you!

  10. Great choice - this will be beautiful. I'm interested that you are using a 'pre-quilted fabric' as the background.. I haven't come across doing this before.

  11. Valley Forge by Nancy Gere, am I right? Love this fabric, it is sitting on my shelf waiting to be cut and sewn into Carrie Nelson's pattern "Elizabeth". It will look beautiful with your choice of pattern. Like Raewyn, I am also interested in the use of a 're-quilted' fabric as the background.
