The last few weeks, I've been quilting old tops from a year or two ago. This one's called "Green Spools" because it's made from 100% "green" (recycled) fabrics and, well, it's green. If you look closely, you can see the Old Navy signature on the grey spool.
I love fabrics from the 1970's, back when I was a teen and energetic young woman. The border fabric is from that era--you know--peace, love and flower power.
The back is from a garage sale. I love the old wall paper look.
This one I call "Sunshine and Scraps." It's inspired by one I saw on the Material Obsession site a few years ago. Everything came from my stash.
The Amy Butler fabric on the back came from a sale rack a few months ago.
Special thanks to Shelly for her encouragement about free-motion quilting. As she says, "Sit up straight, stick the girls out and breathe."
