"Mustgoes"

Well, I finally, finally finished this one. This is the last one in my 2" series from the year 2016 that I hadn't quilted yet.  Actually, it's number 33 and I've already finished up quilt top number 50.  I had delayed quilting this one - first of all, because I wanted to add the applique to it, and then secondly, because I didn't want to quilt over the applique.

So, I procrastinated.

But I do think the best quilts are FINISHED quilts, so I decided to go ahead and tackle it before it gets warm outside.

So, it's done. 

I called it Mustgoes because these are leftover "low volume" or mixed strips that really needed to go. I sewed them together in a long strip, end to end, and then made squares from them. (like in a "Jelly Roll" race quilt).

The pattern is uploaded and is here. Free, naturally. Warning: the applique is not included. Why not?

Well, I really am not much of an artist and I think pretty much anyone who can sew can do equally well as I did, freehand, all by yourself, without my flower. Really. You can. About 80% of you can even do better than I did. Seriously.

These are the kinds of things I like to put in this kind of quilt.  These were leftover from various low volume things I had made.  I tried to stick to pretty much white or off white backgrounds - and keep the print to minimum, though at times I didn't do that very well.

My sis has recently added quite a few fabrics - check out the yardage.  You might be surprised at the goodies you can find there!
