Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Well, Shoot.

Back in October I bought what I thought was a 100% cotton sheet to use for the backing of one of my quilts.  The one I was planning on quilting today.



As you can see it was perfect (the pink on the left).  Turns out it is a 60 /40 poly/cotton blend.  Now I have to decide if I want to use one of these two fabrics or buy something else.




Both of these fabrics came from my mother’s stash.  The top piece is for a Stack-N-Whack quilt that she didn’t get made and I haven’t yet.  The bottom piece was supposed to be a dust ruffle to match the quilt my mom made for my grandmother. I’m rather certain I’m not ready to cut into it yet.  The quilt needs a bit of repair from sun damage.

So it really boils down to do I want to use the floral print or go buy something new. I’ll let you know what I figure out.
