Fabric, Fransson Quilts, Sewing

Planetarium top help me decide backing!

September 9, 2012

This weekend was filled with sewing! The Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild (slmqg) had their Sew Saturday and it always a good break for me to get away from the family and sew for 5hrs straight. Well when a bunch of friends get together to sew, there’s more chatting than sewing. It’s super fun! If you don’t have a guild in your area, why not just get a couple buddies together and sew?

I had a couple frustrating moments during Sew Saturday. . . blocks were messed up and I had some quality time with a seam ripper. Yeah if I wasn’t around people, I’d be yelling “F*&v My Life!” This week I’ll be focusing on finishing those dang bee blocks! argh!! Maybe I should start taking things that don’t take a lot of brain power to Sew Saturdays. ha!

Anyway, I finally finished the Planetarium top, here’s a couple action shots

One printed border!I did one block with Geisha Passion as the border and not solid because I didn’t have a lot of pink border blocks (if you noticed).

Okay here’s the fun part – I’m going to let my readers help me decide on what Indie prints or print I should use on the back.

Here’s the choices:

Wonderlust in Soleil

Geisha in Passion
