No Name project in Progress

Posted by Strlady at 5:30 AM
"No Name" was originally named 25 in 25 and first appeared in American Patchwork and Quilting's April 2004 issue.

As I went searching for a project for a particular loved one, I kept coming back to this quilt. It seemed to really speak to me but the white solids had me questioning the selection. I just had a real problem getting over the solid white. I have a problem with solids period. I've been working at getting past this but I still haven't really gotten over it yet.

When I was in Houston last year I passed a booth that was selling FQ batiks for a steal and as I was looking over the selections, this quilt finally, FINALLY became something I could visualize. I could see the beautiful batiks surrounded by that stark white which would get quilted to add the life that would hug my darling girl. Funny how some quilts make you wait before the decide to get in your face and insist on getting done.

I started cutting and piecing last weekend.
I made a good dent on the 25 blocks that I need.

But I still have 9 blocks before I can attach the sashing and call this top done.

I've been looking for a 108" wide hand dyed flannel for the backing but that fell through. So now I will need to piece the backing before I send this baby out to get quilted. I will also need to decide on what to name it and have been waiting for that AHA moment. Nothing yet.

That looks like a project you can really sink your teeth into! Love it and your choice of fabrics.
