Memory Loss

Not that I'm particularly old, but it is surprising what can slip the brain...

My last post mentioned that for the UFO Challenge pick of the month, first thing I needed to do was pick out a backing as the one I had previously purchased didn't match the unfinished top that is my #9, my Flying Geese Baby Quilt.  This morning I pulled out my bins of folded yardage and could not locate said non-matching fabric. Hmmm.  I turned to the Hoosier cabinet where all my project bins live and hunted down the missing UFO.  

I loved this warm gray modern print, "Comma" for Zen Chic, but felt it looked green next to the cool grays in the quilt top.


However, sitting on top of the bin contents was this aqua print I had completely forgotten having purchased--only a month or two ago at that!  The leaf print is from the same line as the fishy and wood texture prints, "S'mores Love", and I bought all at Superbuzzy.  The yardage was washed and ironed and I set about piecing the remaining scraps into a strip to make the backing wide enough.





So happy to get scraps out of the bin and into a quilt--and many of these prints were leftovers from my grandson Cove's quilt!  My sister Kathy will help me spray baste this one, as well as last month's UFO.  I can do them myself but it's so much better --and more fun--with her helping me.
