Several people complimented the fabrics in my Sea Marquee blocks and I need to be honest. My mom chose almost all of them - the credit goes to her. We were shopping at our favorite discount fabric source (any Mainers will know exactly what I mean!) last summer and we found this 108" wide back. I have quite a few 30s fabrics from the same collection, but not in these colors, so I said it would be too hard to find fabrics to match (not that backs have to match fronts, mind you - I think it was just shopping fatigue). My mom took it as a challenge and ten minutes later several bolts were stacked up near the cutting table. As if I needed to buy anything more that day! The front is much more modern than the back, but like I said, it doesn't have to match!
My mom doesn't do much quilting (she claims to be working on a wall-hanging at the moment, but I'll believe it when I see it ;) ), but she does love shopping for fabric and cheering me on. What a great set-up for me!
Speaking of my mom, she's leaving tonight from Logan and arriving in Helsinki tomorrow afternoon for a one-week visit! I probably won't post until next weekend, but will have lots of fun pictures then.
