One lazy summer day at the cottage, a pile of coordinating jewel toned scraps caught my attention. I decided to make up some Shoo Fly blocks. At the cottage, I have no stash – only have the project specific fabrics I bring from home. Luckily though, I had just purchased several pieces of black cotton at the Sally Ann in Parry Sound. Sometimes I get lucky there! So this Shoo Fly quilt was made so with the scraps and black yardage I had on hand.
I found the plain background to be a bit uninspiring, so I quilted it with a Signature brand variegated thread. It brought the quilt to life! The plum colored binding was applied to the front by machine and hand stitched to the back.
