More Flea Market Fancy Quilt in Progress

The Fancy Quilt top is complete and although it doesn't sound like a lot of work to sew the rows together, the quilt top wasn't finished until late into the evening.  A last minute decision was also made to add 2 extra rows to the length of the quilt top. 


I have absolutely no regrets about cutting into my FMF stash.  It's definitely all about the fabrics for this quilt.


Now as for the backing fabric ~ what to use?  More FMF?  Perhaps just a splash of color to tie in with the quilt top.


Enjoy the eye candy.

  10. Ok - I am working on my very first baby quilt (small small small) and since I've started, you've finished at least 20 quilts! How are you so fast? I know with experience comes the quickness - but seriously - what is your process? I'd love to see/hear more about how you cut, piece, choose what quilting pattern to use, what tricks to you have etc.... Thanks!!! (PS - I love your site and visit at least 5 times a week!) :)
