The swaps have started again. In one, I received a large piece of burlap with spiders stamped on it and cut out two 'grab bags' for a swap I am to send out. It's a Hallows theme too, so the five items inside are to have about a $5 value. I guess burlap is a hot item right now, however, I was glad to have a use for it. Sews easily and ravels as it should.
Most patterns I found use a panel that is larger or quite different than what I had, and all of them recommended adding a border to make up the difference. I did that. Then I cut the suggested squares and rectangles for the borders. No size was given for the finished quilt, so its one of those a quilter has to make as she quilts. I want to make it a good sized lap quilt. The fabric bundle has two large coordinating pieces and possibly enough for the back if it is needed.
This one is going to my younger Son, so that all three of them in his household get one for Winter Solstice this year. Pictures to follow as I ship things out. Let's hope I have figured out the phone photos and can send them here. Gahhh. I am simply getting pushed and pulled into the electronic era.
