I began the new year off and running by assembling a quilt top using thrifted fabric of vintage fabric precuts, batik precuts and a smidgeon of Hawaiian shirt hoarder fabric.
I was finally able to buy a few things on my Amazon wish list and one of those was the book Mixing Quilt Elements: A Modern Look at Color, Style & Design by Kathy Doughty, so I have to admit her book provided some inspiration for the flimsy pictured above.
Vintage fabric quilt needs borders to make it bed-sized so here are the fabrics I am auditioning. I hit the wall on utilizing any more of my stash to complete this quilt. All of the border fabrics were purchased retail. I can't help but get sticker shock when I buy retail fabric - that small stack set me back $50.
Pattern of the Day is a 1967 McCall's, a misses robe to keep you comfy warm.
