On The Bias

To my surprise I’ve completed the top for “It’s Not All Black and White.” Design and construction were relatively pain-free, and I still had two feet of black bias tape left. I started with 20 yards. I see more bias tape projects in my future.

Early days when I was arranging my blocks. The green strips to the right were meant to go between the blocks, but they didn’t work.
Sewn together top that measures about 38 by 53 inches.

Of course I have to develop a quilting plan, but I do have the backing fabric, thanks to thrift store shopping.

Old Alexander Henry fabric. I got 6+ yards for $4.

While I’m bragging on my thrift store finds, here are a few others – 3 yards of wool for $4 and two men’s shirts for $4 each. The striped shirt is a silk/rayon blend.
