|Flea market transformation sneak peak...|
On the other hand, I have been transforming some flea market finds. And that is a good thing. Last evening I put together a quilt top, sandwiched and spray basted it and today I quilted and have the binding ready to hand sew this evening. I think this is a record for me. Quilt in a day. The quilt is a donation quilt. I used 10" squares of flannelette in lovely girly colours. The flannelette is all from the quilter's estate sale fabric from last fall and I backed it with a pink vintage sheet from last weekend's thrifting. The binding is a lavender heart print also from the estate sale.
This quilt will be donated as part of a birthday gift for a little girl whose family is going through some very difficult times. They don't have much in the way of household stuff and considering the sweetie pie has a birthday this week, I thought a quilt would do the trick for my contribution. I even managed to find some flannelette with butterflies. Apparently butterflies are a particular favourite. So there you have it. No flea market finds but a story of flea market transformation. And that is a good thing.
*(I have backed quilts before in flannelette but have never pieced a quilt with it. It is not the most user friendly fabric let me tell you. It tends to be stretchy. Erg.)
