Lesson learned!

I have honestly never thought of doing a "whole cloth" quilt.  I don't mean something fancy-dancy.  Just a piece of fabric with a nice backing and putting a lovely pantograph on it.
These are charity quilts made from donations of fabric.  I volunteered to do the quilting for these quilts for the Caring Stitchers at SewEtc., in Burlington.
The first quilt is stitched in brilliant yellow thread with the Splash panto and you can see why when you look at the back.
The top actually looks pieced, but it wasn't!
I chose the bright yellow backing because it matched the yellow in the top so well and who doesn't love a crazy frog

 Then onto number two.  This is the top.  The cutest animals and numbers.  I opted to use the pantograph Popcorn on this one
 Now look at the shape of the design and look at the lamb!  Now you know why
 The backing is a Basically Hugs fabric.  Simple white with orange dots.  Because the huge number 8 and the backing both have orange I went with orange thread.  Make it fun.  It's for a baby.

Well, July is nearly over.  When did that happen.
We have spent so many wonderful hours on our back deck.  It has been the best investment and our gardens are coming along beautifully.
It is lovely to just walk out the doors with our supper and not have the walk we did at the old house.  Many a night we never bothered to eat outside over there. It was just way too much work.
Now, when Mother Nature co-operates, we have many suppers, lunches, coffee breaks, sewing time out there.
