WIP Wednesday


My DP blocks are in half-rows.  I'm determined to finish the top today, and hopefully the quilt will be done by the end of the week.  Well, except for the handstitching.  That will take a few days, I'm sure.  But it will be worth it :)

look what I picked up for the backing:


it is a flannel shirting from Joann's.  I wasn't planning on using flannel, but once I picked up this bolt I couldn't stop stroking it :) 

I think I've become a bit obsessed with the feel of fabrics.  Even when I'm clothes shopping, I walk arround stroking the fabrics and commenting on the feel of them.  I'm sure the salespeople think I'm nuts :)

Have a happy Wednesday! And stop by Freshly Pieced to see everyone else's WIPs!

Great fabrics on the DP blocks - so cheerful! I know what you mean about the feel of fabric.

I've always been obsessed with the way fabric feels. As a child, I remember kind of wiping my hand off whenever I touched polyester. :) Thank heavens the way fabric feels has changed over time! :)

Can't wait to see your quilt finished!
