Another Flimsy finish....

In July at Quilt Odyssey, I had the opportunity to take a class with Bonnie Hunter.  This was the Tumalo Trail Pattern out of her book Scraps and Shirttails II.  I had cut a bunch of my Christmas fabrics into 1.5-inch strips to make pineapple blocks and wasn't thrilled with the way they were turning out so I decided to use them to make the 9-patches for this quilt.

LOVE IT!!!!!

I'm going to use big pieces of my Christmas fabrics that are left to make the backing.

Oh, the red border and sashing fabrics???? I've had those for probably 23 years... since Erin was little (she is 26).

Tomorrow is our day to take Beth back to Drexel while grammy and pappy take Abby back to IUP.

So, I will have to wait for Monday to sew.... we still have two days of our holiday break.

Quilty Hugs!
