I took it to Whirls and Swirls in Oshawa a new LAQ store and machine quilted it. I had fun doing it, This was the first one I did there and I don`t think I posted a full picture of it.
This is the fabric on the back of it. This was fun Love the kitty with the glasses which was appropriate for today`s weather. as you can see below I have rhubarb coming up already! isn`t that green gorgeous.
It has cut into my sewing time though so I will have to make up for it later. I have been appliqueing my baskets and I have only 70 left to do! from 300! I am awesome...this is fun!
I have 3 there and will bring 3 more to Whirls and swirls. They have edge to edge with batting free for the month of March.
I think this is very modern don`t you? This is going to get quilted too, ugh more backing to piece. I am my worst own enemy I know I could use the wide backs but I get more variety from the fabric that I choose. I like to make my backs as interesting as my fronts

so 2 years later I found the perfect fabric, did I say 2 years, yes you are correct. Walking Dead fabric, I knew she was a follower of the Walking Dead (honestly so am I) then it was to find the right fabrics and pattern to work with it. She wanted red, white and black only on the quilt.
Log Cabin Yardage had it all so I spent a Friday night there sewing and picking fabric as I went along, plus other days to piece it all. That red fabric I loved I just went and finished the bolt! oh as well the walking dead fabric too as you know I am making the other one.
Piecing had to be precise for the blocks to fit once I find that darn pattern I will post the name. I have a bad habit of putting stuff away and not remembering where.
Then I had to get it quilted Sandy of Scrappy Gal Quilt Co came to the rescue! If you go to her blog you will see better pictures of the quilting and quilt, for some reason I didn`t very good pictures. Sandy quilted it in red and free handed these wonderful swirls!
Did you see the border fabric? it is of New York it has all the street names and habours it is very cool I know that the walking dead was in Georgia but this to me was close enough, if you follow at one point one of the Characters had a map drawn on the chalk board of his neighbourhood this is supposed to depict that scene.
It was much fun to make you will see that I got my flower in on the back Is this not the best?!
