Yesterday’s Accomplishments

Staying on track with the list, the pink Carpenter’s Star quilt was actually finished on Wednesday night but I did get the backing pieced yesterday.

The purple fabric has 1996 on the selvage.  I remember buying that while I still lived in Louisiana and I left there in 1997 so it’s an oldie but a goody.  It’s a Lunn fabric and definitely looks like the fabrics they produced during that era.  Even though it’s a tone on tone and at one I would have used it for piecing, I think my tastes have drifted more to tone on tones with less print . . almost a solid or certainly something that would read a solid from a photo such as this.  So, it’s a great backing and it’s great to have it out of my stash.

On the agenda for today — getting the blue Carpenter’s Star pieced.  It’s been a busy morning so hopefully I can sew the rest of the day and late into the night.

    Do you ever have any problems with fabric that is aged, such as mentioned in your post?
