a strippie quilt
I need to make a quilt quickly for a birthday present for a boy in Red's cub scout den. I had most of this fabric-only added the canoes. I had purchased the camping flannel that I used for the backing to make pjs for the boyos but it worked so well on this quilt! I even cut some of my beloved Happy Campers fabric. I really need to find some more of that. This pattern is a free download from Mary Quilts.
I learned a couple of things on this quilt. First off, I need to get more "blenders". Apparently I'm addicted to the flashy fabrics and never think of buying the accent stuff. Secondly, I love love LOVE Mettlers Web Bond spray adhesive. It worked beautifully and had very little odor. Thirdly, using the mdf boards so layer the quilt is really a time and back save. Finally, I really must learn how to do machine binding. I was an hour and a half late to the party because I was hand sewing the binding!
This is the backing fabric. Isn't it great camping fabric?
I really liked these canoes when I saw them. I only bought a half yard and I really should get some more.
