Strange Bedfellows

Who would ever think that fabric from Ginny Beyer would be called into service to complete at quilt made of Kaffe Fassett fabrics?


Well, when I was shopping for backings a couple of weeks ago (I wrote about it here), I also bought this gorgeous blue GB fabric to use as a backing for a quilt we are giving to my brother- and sister-in-law.
This quilt is called Bradford's Star. I made it about 3+ ago when Terry needed a variety of samples for her guild and a mystery activity they did at a retreat. It's just been hanging out in my closet ever since. When DH and I decided we wanted to give his brother a quilt, this is the one they picked. Seems perfect for a Florida home, doesn't it?

I am hoping that the backing yardage will be enough to do the job, but just in case, I do still have some of the fabrics to add extensions if necessary.

This will have to be put on a fast-track. I have many irons in the fire, but this needs prompt attention.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
