Big and Little, part 1
During the Spot on Retro quilt class last month, one of the other participants, Barbara, was using some fabrics that I fell in love with. The aqua boomerang print that is in some of the background squares, and the outer border. I used some fabrics that are in the big spot quilt for a mother/daughter thing that's matchy, but not. The backing fabric will be the boomerang print. In the interest of economy, I left off the outer border that I had planned originally. I would have had to double the yardage for the back with the additional border. The quilt will still be the right size for Piccolo use. I think I will use a bright binding for another color pop when I get to that part in the process. I went to a little quilt expo yesterday and got some more repro retro dog fabric, and some applique dogs that have the fusable web on already. I'm cooking up a few more mini dog quilts in my head.
