One unexpected surprise from our new earlier mornings since Ethan started kindergarten is that Ellie, who was once phasing naps out, definitely needs a midday rest. What does all this mean? I have found that I now have 1 to 2 hours of time during the day all to myself! And guess what I decided to do with that time? Quilt…shocking I know!
On Wednesday I had the creative itch during this new found time, and I sewed up the back for the Rocqua Rhythm quilt. I designed the back, and I just love it! It’s kind of a large modified log cabin. When I originally bought fabric for the back my intention was to just use the turquoise and the white with pink flowers. After I finished the top and laid out the backing fabric, I felt the back needed some more punch and pizazz. So, I played around with the leftover fabrics from the quilt top and the turquoise and white with pink flowers until I found an arrangement I liked. I really do love how it turned out…in fact, I like the back as much as the front!
The binding is going to be the apples from the quilt top.
