Since I do most of my quilting on weekend, I decided to finish the Scraps Ahoy top I was working on from the free pattern Judy L posted on her site Patchwork Times. This is my first truly scrappy quilt and I loved it. It was so easy and mindless. I cut squares into triangles put them all in a bag and got my 2-1/2" strip bin and just grabbed and sewed. I didn't have to worry about matching fabric just what ever came out was what i sewed. I think it turned out wonderful.
I looked thru my stash to find a back b/c since this is a scrappy quilt I don't want to buy any fabric for it. Especially since my daughter and I reorganized my fabric and my stash somehow grew from three huge clear tubs to four. I think b/c I keep going to lunch every week at LQS in Lafayette with my mom and come back with something new. Anyway, I found this fabric. Its one of those that I can't figure out what I was thinking when I bought it. I do remember it was on sale for $2.00/yard so I got 5 yards. So now I am thinking I will use this as my backing b/c I will never use it for the front of a quilt. Looking at it I think since I did mindless sewing on front I could do mindless quilting on back with no marking and just following the hexagons on fabric. What do you think? Will it work?
