One to donate, one to sell
I finished a couple of quilts. The first is a little doggie themed quilt with some orphan flying geese blocks. Thanks to Pat, I had the perfect backing, a flannel with doggie prints.
The second quilt is one made from my stash of Route 66 fabrics. This particular print features the "Bluebird Hotel" sign which bears a striking resemblance to the Blue Swallow Motel, which we used to own. I'm sure it was a deliberate attempt at bypassing trademark issues, which at the time the fabric came out we would not have pursued. It is a generous lap quilt, 64 X 79" and I'll be selling it.
I quilted it with the clouds and lightning bolts pantograph. The backing is a solid, celery green color.
