What's bright, polka dotted all over, and finally finished (the top, that is)?
Yes, I finally got it done!!! Woo Hoo!!! Now it's off to Terry's to get quilted. I can't wait to see what she does with it. Barbara of Quilt Soup is the designer. I first saw the quilt in the Spring 2007 issue of Quilts and More. It's called Spring Loaded in the magazine, but Barbara has named it as Corner Flower Shop. Personally I like that name better! The fabrics are designed by my bloggy friend Holly Holderman. I love her stuff!
It's been a while since I have done my Sunday Stash Busting Report. I have bought lots of fabrics after going to the AQS show in Paducah. I added 27 yards of fabric to my stash. I'm not sure how much Corner Flower Shop/Spring Loaded used, but it's a kit that's not in my sewing room any more. That feels great!
I did, however, use 6 yards of fabric that was in my stash for the back of the quilt.
I saw this fabric on sale at Hancocks and didn't know what I would do with it, but I loved it, so it came home with me. Who knew that 3 years later I would have the perfect backing to such an adorable quilt! I have just enough left over to make a sleeve for it to hang in my guild's upcoming quilt show.
