HQAL: Capital T Quilt Update

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 @ Ā 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 šŸ™‚ Please take a moment or two and enjoy the projects of the other hand quilters in our group.

    Perfect choice for the backing, I think purple is a bit like green – there’s so many variations it’s not easy to get a match, so well done šŸ™‚

    I think you are definitely okay with that backing, if the photos are at all color-accurate. So hand quilting, here you come!
