Aren’t These Cute

Before Bonnie left for Bali, she announced the new Leader/Ender challenge.  Three inch spools.  I didn’t participate in last year’s bowties.  I’m not sure what I was working on at the time — maybe the log cabin blocks?  Anyway, yesterday I pulled out my 1 1/2″ strip boxes and cut the needed pieces for 8 blocks.  So far I’ve finished three working on the backing for Carolina Christmas.

Originally, I planned to use a blue and white 30’s print, but I needed at least another 1/2 yard.  I’m sure I could have stretched it enough to loaded the quilt top to bottom, but I want to load it sideways.

I dug through my orphan block box and found 7 leftover Carolina Christmas blocks.  Then I dug through the stash I found these four fabrics plus one more not shown.    I think it’s going to be a cute backing — once I fix the pink strips.

One Thought on “Aren’t These Cute

  1. Yes they are cute, and if you turn them sideways they look like Bow ties. LOL Love the scrappy backing. Have fun quilting your Carolina Christmas.
