Supersize It - a little more Sew and Tell!!

Hi, all!

I FINALLY got this Super-size Shoe Fly quilt top pieced - and neither too-bright sunshine nor gale force winds was going to prevent me posting a pic on Sew and Tell Friday!! I can't wait to quilt this one - but I'm still waffling on exactly how to do it. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear your ideas!!


FYI, this quilt is for a silent auction that my daughter is holding in June to help raise funds to pay for their adoption of a child from Ethiopia. I'm hoping to get three more (one more like this in different fabrics, a picture frame quilt, and a child's four-patch) done by then. Whew!!

Later!

  3. Nice soft colors.I like diagonal quilting too on those triangles! Maybe grids to accent your pattern. Can't wait to see them all.
