Wendy's Longarm Quilting, Thunder Bay, Ontario

A Quilt Shop Visit

A friend and I spent yesterday morning on a fun outing to Donnas quilt shop in Pass lake yesterday. He shop is called Fuelled By Fabric and I have written about her before.

I was on the lookout for a backing for quilt top that I made last year as part of the Color Collective by Tara Faughnan and Sewtopia. The quilt block is named flock and I wanted an interesting backing that would work with both the colours in the quilt top and also birds of some type.

This print is perfect, really so close to what I had in mind!

Last night after turning off the Longarm, I laid the fabric out to see how it would match up when I seam the two pieces needed. Sometimes it requires quite a bit of extra fabric to Mach the print, however not this time! ( this picture actually shows the true colours in the print!)

I have been a quilter for many years and the passion for both quilting for others and for making my own quilts only grows!
