Blow The Trumpets, Clash the Cymbals - Nine Patch Friends Is Finished
Here is the back of the quilt. As you see I had to add a strip of fabric diagonally to make it large enough for the backing. I described this process of adding a diagonal piece of fabric to widen or lengthen backing on this blog post.
Well - now I can say I used my 25 yards of fabric since August to meet the guild challenge for this year. Thank goodness that is done! Already have an idea for what to do next but first I must get the rest of the things ready to take to the guild meeting. We are having a kind of auction where we all bring an item we no longer want and donate it - everyone buys tickets and drops them into the bag of the item they want to win. The tickets are cheap - 10 for $1 and everyone gets into the spirit of it. We also are having a pot luck supper and playing a dice game called Right, Left Center and the items we are trying to win are 2 1/2" strips of fabric. Our May meeting is always so much fun so am looking forward to it.
