Two down...

I finished up my sister's quilt. I stitched in the ditch and then quilted diagonally in one direction (echoing the pattern).


The backing is a 'period appropriate' pink & white stripe-floral. ;)

So in theory, I only have two more projects to finish before I'm allowed to buy more fabric. But, what would a diet be without some cheating?
Obviously Kaffe Fassett fabrics on 50% off sale don't count!
And uh... more Valorie Wells fabric because... well, she's from Oregon and I feel strongly about supporting local economies... yeah. ;)

But I'm cutting out the shorts that were on the list tonight, so I'm still actually getting things done. Just still taking in fabric fast than I'm using it. Oh well, I'll catch up over the winter right? =P

Your sister's quilt is very stylish and lovely: the backing is a great touch and it deserves to be shown off! The Valerie Wells fabric, I adore. I would probably cheat on my partner with that fabulous pattern and colour, never mind a stash diet!

Sis's quilt looks good!

I love that ginormous floral paisley!

Kaffe Fassett fabrics on 50% off sale do so count! Cheater! Cheater!

I'll admit that your sister's quilt looks pretty smashing, though.
