Three weeks hasn’t brought much progress on the Capital T quilt but I did decide on my backing material. I originally had thought I’d use a solid fabric in the cranberry, maroon color of the sashing material.
Finding the right coordinating color proved harder than I thought. In fact, it was impossible for me. I had taken a gamble and ordered a king size flat sheet but the color was off. I could have spent more boots on the ground time shopping but ultimately I decided on a pattern which I think will work perfectly.
It is from Joanns, one of the premium wide cotton fabrics @ 108″ for 19.99 on sale at 11.99 . I bought 2 yards and will have more than enough to use in something else.
Hoping I’ll have her all sandwiched together next time with some quilting begun 🙂 Please take a moment or two and enjoy the projects of the other hand quilters in our group.
