Not long ago I received an email from Mari, The Academic Quilter, offering me a group of floral fabrics. I was delighted by her kind gesture and even more so when I received her package. They are all color coordinated and so very pretty. They varied in size from,fat quarters to about a yard.
I wasn’t quite sure how to use them, so they sat where I could see them. Last week I was continuing my fabric purge and came across a group of 4-1/2 by 6-1/2 inch batiks from a fabric exchange at our Monona Quilters group. No idea how long they have been tucked away, at least a year. The colors blended very nicely with Mari’s fabrics.
This is how they looked after I stitched them into rows of seven for a some 42-inch strips. I plan to make a top by mixing both groups into a row quilt, one of my favorites. There will be plenty of extra pieces to make a coordinated backing. I have some 50×60 battings for the quilt.
An unexpected but very welcome project. I’ll keep you posted soon.
