As promised, here are pics of the changed setting rectangle fabric for E-1's quilt. It makes the quilt much more monochromatic and she liked that.
Now the original alternate fabric will become backing, along with this spicy solid batik.
I sewed together three rows of the quilt last night and it sure comes together quickly since there are no seams to match block-to-block. It is looking really pretty and I should be able to get the top finished in no time. The blocks are 7 x 10.5, with a 7 x 9 block layout, perfect throw size. As for when the top becomes a quilt, well, that's less easy to predict....:)
