Christmas Gold Sofa Throw

I finally managed to finish up one of the flimsies (unfinished quilt tops) I posted last week. I sure hope it doesn't take me as long to do the rest of them! This was made using sampler blocks from several years ago that I had never gotten around to finishing. Luckily I was able to find enough of the red fabric still in my stash to do the binding. I have a bad habit of putting a flimsie aside to finish up later, and when I get back to it I find I've used up all the appropriate fabric in newer scrappies and have to scramble to find something that works. I'm trying really hard to finish as I go on any project that needs to stick with a particular fabric. It's just too frustrating to know that I HAD the right fabric but then forgot and used it on something else!
Happy Quilting!

  1. A very attractive finish! I love the way the cheddar unifies the design elements with lots of punch!

  2. Love it, Jean - it really stands out with that cheddar yellow, red and green. I've done the same thing - having a flimsie that I then used up all the fabric I needed for it. So now I try to find a big plastic bag and put the flimsie and the fabric together so I don't use it up.
