Baby Quilt Progress - It's a Flimsy!
Wow...this Disappearing Four Patch pattern does work up quite quickly.I went from the first sample blocks to these few blocks and then to a finished flimsy in a very short period of time.
I love the way the little red border gives everything a little splash of happy colour and separates the blocks from the border but also ties them together. I am very happy with the way the top turned out but I do have a little problem with the backing. The top turned out a bit bigger than I had anticipated and because I am using fabric from stash I am limited to the quantities that I have.
backing fabric is so cute!
My quilt top is 40" x 48" and the backing is 38" x 44" so I will need to piece my backing. I have decided that adding some red to the back will look pretty good but I don't have enough of the same lot of red solid that I used on the front. I don't think anyone will mind if I use another red that is a different shade - they probably won't even notice!
