Final finish of 2011



Happy New Year!

My last finish of 2011 is this bright flimsy done in the Yellow Brick Road pattern. It is a baby gift for one of my daughter's friends who is having a baby boy in January. His room is all done in primary colors with a race car theme.

I used a fat quarter bundle of primary colors that I bought several years ago. I have no idea anymore what fabric line it was and there were no selvages on any of the pieces to tell me. Bummer! Two of the fabrics are racing themed: the black and white checkered flag and the yellow one with different flags. I added a couple of black-on-black dot pieces in the quilt to balance the corners. And the stripe is something I bought this week for borders.

My plan is to put a yellow minkee on the back and then bind it with more of the red stripe.

  2. That turned out great! I love how it pops. I'm working on a YBR for a sample with owls and I just love how the pattern works out so well.
