Finish #3 for 2011 :)

Here it is, the third finish of the year:

LeMoyne Blues

Not sure what's going to come out of the dryer. . . the white fabric looked like it was trying to be funky when I pulled it out of the washer. We'll see!


Addendum, Thursday March 10:

Well, that white fabric got whipped back into line by the dryer - enough to make me happy again, anyway.  :)  It's a weird fabric that stretches unpredictably. Been in my stash for quite a while. I was worried when I saw it hanging all baggy-saggy from the more open areas (moderately quilted, no huge spaces!) - especially since this fabric is used in a queen-size quilt that is going to my favorite long-arm gal, Patty, when my turn comes back around. It'll just need closer quilting done on those parts to keep it looking really sharp.


Lookin' Good!  



And it's a BEAUTIFUL follow-on day after a nasty tornado/thunderstorm day with the wildest thunder and scariest-looking radar line I may have ever seen.  :D

How pretty. I love the border fabric. Did you use a Shout Color Catcher when you washed it? Man, those things are amazing! White and red together, no problem. Grabs all that mess!

You know, I did not use a Color Catcher because my fabrics were all pre-washed. The batting I used is 100% cotton, so I still got the shrinkage effect for the soft crinkly look/feel. The funkiness with the white was a strange stretching of the fabric. It's just a bad fabric. What I get for using some cheap stuff. But the white-on-white was so nice. The dryer made it behave for the most part. :)
