In and around the activity chronicled in the previous two posts, I finished two flimsies. I had enough backing for both of these quilts that I didn't need to make a pieced insert but I'd done that with the other quilts I finished this month, so why not?
I pieced the strip of green/purple specifically for this backing.
Framed Coins. I made the flimsy last spring when I was displaced from my studio. I had just enough of the orange-with-circles print to cut 5" strips for the border. The insert is made with 3.5" nine-patches from the Block Swappers.
I have decided to sit on the fence during this year's
Quiltville mystery. I will save each weekly clue in the event that it turns out to be a design that I really like. Meanwhile I will devote my quilting time to finishing flimsies and making swap blocks.
