I didn't want to start an entirely new quilt so I turned to the box o' flimsies and pulled out the rail fence that I made a couple of weeks ago. I quilted meandering curlicues.
The back has an insert strip. I thought that if I tried to make a pieced insert I'd get stalled, and I was in the mood for a finish.
This will be donated to a charity event this fall.
"Purple Mountain Majesty," a split 9-patch, was the August Block Lotto block. Here are my entries (9 for the draw and one for the pot).
These were fun to make. I like the purple and gray color combination.
And the flinging? I advertised seven flimsies on the Facebook groups Quilter's Virtual Yard Sale and Quilters Classifieds. Within a few hours all seven were sold! I probably charge too little for them, but I look at it this way: they could hang around for years before I quilt them. I could quilt them myself (some more sucessfully than others) or I could pay $$ to have them professionally quilted and then I'd donate them to charity. This way I'm recouping some of my costs and clearing the way for more flimsies and more quilts.
