i just finished piecing my synchronized squares quilt top! i'm a little behind on the quilt along (snort!), but a little ahead on my holiday decor.
i had planned to back this with some red and black plaid flannel from granny marie's stash, without any batting, just tying it. now, i'm thinking it will be too heavy with flannel. the extra layer of fabric makes it weighty already.
instead of layer cakes like the pattern suggests, i used a bunch of 4" and 5" charms from swaps i've done. i did mess up a few times and got my squares flipped or mixed up during sewing. i am sort of *particular* about the same fabrics being next to one another - so i ripped out some stitches to fix it.
i can't wait to finish and wash it though, and see the edges fray and curl on the squares!
now i'm going to veg on the couch, under my quilt top, and watch mad men. it's new to netflix and i'm hooked.
