Well, this fabric has been sitting a couple years. I made a tree skirt with the printed fabric and another complementing fabric. Stupid me didn't put enough quilting on it, as she had to wash it and it balled up. So this is a replacement for that one.. Shouldn't have any problems with it balling up. I left the blue pounce on the white to show the quilting. The cardinal fabric is on the back, she can flip to which ever side meets her mood at that time.
I started going to the thrift store and buying all of the scrap materials they had for about 6 months. I wanted to make a quilt like my grandmother used to make..she called it a stringy quilt. I even found the batting, border, and backing the thrift store. The backing was already cut into 14 x 65 strips of red material that I only had to sew together and the border was already cut as well. I used the quilt as you go method but instead paper, I used cut up squares of scrap batting. The total quilt cost me $50 to make this king size quilt.
