Refinish a Flimsie and Ready for Halloween!

 I am so so so happy that I took off the original border and changed it to
2 solid borders on my Grandson's Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt.
What a difference a border can make!
 This is just a glimpse of the back.  I am trying to use up more of the
bricks I cut out a few months ago. 
Now, what to do with all the other ones I have cut from different fabrics?
I think I have made 3 or 4 of the Bricks and Stepping Stones so I may just trim the
remaining colors down and make a Scrappy Chevron.

 This Halloween Shoo Fly was made from leftover Halloween fabrics.  I fell in love with the
purple bubble fabric so had to buy it to use as the back.
The quilting was done by Kerry at Utah Valley Quilting in Springville.
I let her pick the thread color and I am so happy with
her choice of a variegated purple/orange/green.
I just love the spider webs.

A little plug for Kerry.  
She is great.  She meets at a quilt shop close by every Saturday.
Picks up your quilt AND
returns it the following Saturday!
How great is that?

Back to my sewing room to keep clearing out the UFO's from forever ago.

Happy Quilting!                Lynda

I agree with you Lynda about the borders on your grand son's quilt. I really like the new combination and also the back. Well done. And what wonderful quilting on your Halloween quilt and what a service Kerry provides. I wish I had a "Kerry" close by!
