ANYHOO...this is Gail's quilt. I just finished it a couple of days ago. She has the most coolest vintage fabrics. The yellow butterfly brought back sweet memories because we had those sheets when I was growing up...lol! I put an iron-on stabilizer on each block. All of the fabrics needed a little support and by adding the stabilizer this quilt should last a very long time. I read on someone's blog about using stabilizer because I wouldn't have known. Gail found the perfect binding to go with her quilt, it's from the Dream On line. The backing was supposed to be all Bella Solid white. But I also had some yardage from the Dream On collection and decided to add a 5 inch strip to the middle of the backing (pic #4). I love everything about this quilt...the fabric & style just fit. I can't wait for Gail to see it in person because quilts are so much more beautiful in person.
I'm looking forward to doing some blog surfing tomorrow. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.
ps...when I took pictures of the quilts on the the fallen tree, I had a sheet underneath the quilt.
