It seems like I've been sewing plaid fabric forever! For the last few days, I've been using up all the bits and pieces to make pieced backs for the 3 plaid tops that are finished.
I began by cutting 10 1/2 inch squares. Some of the fabric wasn't wide enough after washing, to get 4 across, so I ended up with some smaller pieces. I cut these into 5 inch x 10 1/2 inch strips.
I had pinwheel units made from the cut-offs of Smokey Mountain Stars blocks. I also had strip sets from Moth in the Window. I began combining strip sets, etc. to make 3 1/2 inch wide pieces.
Oh the insanity!!!!
So far I have one back totally prepared, and a strip of 10" squares to go on one edge of the second, and 2 strips of 10" squares to go on the third. Now I have to piece the remaining puzzle pieces to make up the rest of the backs.
Even though pin-basting is my least enjoyable part of quilting - this time I'm really looking forward to it!!!!
