My trip around all five of the town's charity shops yielded nothing in the way of inspirational backing fabric for me to use for QuiltSue's a Festive Mystery quilt, so I am stuck with what I've got if I want to press on with this one.
Domino helped audition the pieces of fabric and we've decided that it will either be a darker William Morris style print, or a plain white. I'm erring towards the white. The colour balance on these photos is really poor, but you get the gist.
I also need to decide on what to use as quilting thread. There is only one local shop which sells thread - and even there, there is very little choice. Hmm.
Whilst I'm sorting that little connundrum out, I think I'll go and do some more on the binding for Granny Helen's baby mat.
