Second Thoughts

While working on the teal and gray back for the comma quilt I decided I didn't really like it for a back. So I just kept sewing and it's now it's another top. Well now I have 2 to quilt. I ordered more of the comma fabric for the back of the yellow and gray quilt, I think that will be much better. I just love that fabric. Not my normal colors at all but I really like it.

So I wanted to use the 2nd top as quilting practice for different patterns. 
The large areas of "solids" will be great for that. So I started marking the top. 

I've used a Frixion pen to mark up my quilting patterns

And this will be the back of this quilt. Thinking of using a giant
stack n' whack look to be in contrast with the blocky look on the front. 

Went out to our JoAnn's yesterday to take advantage of the moving liquidation sale. 
I was on the hunt for solids. Two I was looking for, black and white were all gone. 
I did find this beautiful black and white print thou which I think will be great for quilt backs. Everything in the store must go and is priced just right. We are really looking forward to the new store opening.

This DMC thread will be used on a new project I want to start soon. Penny rugs. I just
love the look of them and really want to try this out. Most of the ones I've seen where Civil War colors/patterns, but I want to try making some more modern Christmas style.

Well need to get to that quilt really want to get the gray and teal
pinned today and ready to quilt. Just need to get that pesky housework
out of the way and then it's quilt time.

LOL.. I have been a bad influence on you!
I love that blue fabric with the bits of yellow and the stitch markings printed on it. I had some of that.

At least now you will get two quilts. hehehe Of course I like having a pieced back so I have a "2 for 1" quilt.
