It's a "Flimsy"...

I've been working on the "Tuxedo Quilt" since January and it is finally a top...or "flimsy", as quilters call it!  Tomorrow I am going to go buy a stencil for the border, and then after marking it, I'll be loading it into my frame so I can start with the hand-quilting.  I went ahead and loaded the backing into the frame today.

The "black" fabric looks solid from a distance, but this is what it looks like up close...

The white is a tone-on-tone with a swirl design in it, too.

This is the backing fabric I chose...fancy but whimsical...

I'm planning on entering this quilt in next year's quilt show in April!  :)   It measures 97" x 107" and is a variation of the "Hunter's Star" pattern.  It was designed with EQ7 and cut out completely on my Accuquilt using the Hunter's Star die.



  1. Looks pretty so far.


  2. This is such a striking quilt, Loretta. It's just beautiful. I have trouble sewing using the same two or three fabrics but I love the finished look of a two-fabric quilt. Who made and where did you buy the brown fabric on the front. I really like the variety of shades in it.
