I finished my Cabin Fever quilt, started in 1995:
The backing is made up of 20 fat quarters (I trimmed them all to 21" x 18").
After realizing on basting day that the backing was short, I attached the NYC subway fabric to the top and bottom.
Here is the backing before quilting.
Coco took a 30 minute sun bath on it one afternoon (she's avoiding eye contact with me).
Here is my favorite FQ on the back. These funny Chimps. The eyes are a scream.
I quilted each block and then on the diagonal in one direction.
The label - and hooray, I had the opportunity to use this funny label. I didn't actually take forever, just 18 years to get back to it.
I couldn't decide on a single binding fabric, so I used 4, one on each side.
Here is a rag ball made of batting and the strip that gets trimmed after binding. I've been making these for each larger quilt that I do.
And what's next? I'm working on finishing my last border on the Jubilee quilt and I am piecing more of my flying geese that I traded with Susan and Jill. It's happy and fun.
What are you up this week?
