Two of the tops have backings. One of those backings is fleece, so that one won't require batting.
That still leaves 6 tops that I need to acquire batting for and 5 tops that need backings.
Oh yeah .. the fleece yardage. When Joann's has a sale on fleece, I buy a bunch with the idea of using them as backings. Some times I simply bind them, do machine embroidery designs in a corner and use as-is ... but these 7 fleece yardage pieces can certainly be used as backings .. no batting required. I'm not entirely certain that they coordinate with any of the tops I've done, so these might be backings in search of a top.
You can't BUY that much fleece as yardage for only $2.50! So, I rummaged around what was on the shelf and picked out the ones that looked more suitable for kid's quilts. The other stadium blankets they had were much more somber and dull.
These are in search of a coordinating top.
Oh, and let's not forget the OTHER bed sized tops that I have previously finished but not quilted ... there's
- the Mardi Gras Mariner's compass from 2002. It's still a single big block with delusions of becoming a quilt.
- Wheel of Fortune from 2003. This doesn't count as a top cuz they are just blocks but I probably ought to include them anyway.
- Chiclets from 2006. This is a king size top. Oy.
- Ah! Real Monsters from 2007. This a double quilt. I think.
- God's Eye scrap quilt from 2008. Another BIG quilt
- A Stacked-and-Whacked Pirate from 2008. O.M.G. This is huger than huge; bigger than big. This one is the 800 lb gorilla that I'm ignoring.
- Faux Stained Glass wall hanging from 2008. I completely forgot about this one
- "Journey to Phoenix" from 2009. The top is done but no page to look at yet.
I think I have a problem. :-)
Anyone Out There have a similar problem? Would you like to talk about it? [grin]
