This one didn't turn out very big, so will have to go to a little one. It started as a way to use up my leftover blocks from the Barn Raising Quilt I'm working on to show at guild next month. I guess this is a sneak peak. I then added borders to make it a bit larger. Just an all over meander quilting on this one.
A pretty solid piece of pansy fabric for the back. Final measurements: 36"x36".
If you have a fabric that is quite light, such as the outer border on this quilt, you can use stabilizer to help it hold up. The fabric was 100% cotton, but very thin and flimsy, so I just ironed on some light stabilizer and used it in the quilt. It still softened up in the wash, and this way I know it will hold up better over the long run.
