Below are the Tar Heels fabrics we have been able to find. Can't wait to see what Joan creates. She may use any or all or these plus some solids.
Dec 30: Joan has her fabrics now to make the top & I have mine for the backing. They have been pre-washed and are ready to sew!
Jan 2: Joan has been sick but says the top will be shipped Monday! I am planning to piece the backing tomorrow that has been lying across the longarm for several days now. By Thursday there should be a quilt needing only the binding. Several evenings later, it will be done. Soon now, Tony!
Jan 5: The quilt top arrived today. Now that I see it, this one is crying out for one of Sandy's custom designs. The curls in the sashing would make a perfect longarm design that makes this classy looking quilt even better! So the three wins may have just become four wins!
Jan 17: Sandy did her design today. I have had a time seaming the backing but it is now done too. This will be quilted with two layers of cotton batting for extra warmth.
Jan 18: Loaded & basted. Hit a snag in Sandy's design so will longarm when that is fixed.
Jan 20: Longarming done! Binding in progress.
Jan 31: Joan sent 2 matching pillow cases for this quilt - a freebie for him.
Feb 01: Binding, and thus the quilt, is finished!
