Since the whole quilt is fairly free form, so is the quilting. I'm pretty pleased with it, even if it is not perfect. There are stripes on the sashing and the coins are - well, shorter stripes.
You can see my ambling on the back.
Here is the whole back. And can you see what I used? A big ol' slab of Flea Market Fancy.
Part of me feels like a heathen novice quilter, but it is so deliciously soft. And while the front is a brighter color pallet, the back is slightly more sedate, and the FMF just helped pull it all together.
School starts next week. Little Ivy will be in preschool. It doesn't seem like she should be old enough, but mama is ready for a couple hours a week to herelf. Seriously ready. In fact, maybe a little too ready.
Blue is starting kindergarten next week. It amazes me that kids are already in school. My sister is a teacher, and by now she is in full swing. I'm sure you will hear a little school bus sob story next week. It seems impossible that this time has come around. I honestly never really thought it would. I thought, in fact, that she would be three or four forever.
