Return to Wonderland

I have been completing lots of flimsies this year -some I can share and some I can't ('cause they are surprises for other people) - but since Return to Wonderland is one for me, I will share it.

This is a quilt along I did with Shellie using Pat Speth's Sunny Lanes pattern and more of the Moda Wonderland - or what I had not already used in Jill's quilt Sibling Revelry. Shellie did hers in more vintage fabrics, while I went bright and bold. I love them both!

The backing on this will be a fun pink on pink that I found at an awesome "yard sale" - pun intended!!! Shellie and I had great fun - making multiple trips from that sale to the ATM and back to the sale!!!

So once the summer heat subsides a bit, and I can reclaim a bit of the living room floor for doing some sandwiching, I hope to turn some of these flimsies into finished projects!



PS - these were some of the fabrics from the big sale. Most of these got shipped off to Jill, but the two on the far left I kept. The pink -and some awesome soft green - were purchased on a return trip and I have not taken photos of those yet. The gold will be the back of Just Me and My SIS.

I really like pictures of flimies taken with light shinning through them. The look like stained glass windows. Great yard sale finds.
Happy quilting!

Love you! Karen

I love this quilt! The colors are beautiful and the pattern you used is really lovely. Marj is so right - hanging there on the line with the light shining through gives is the look of stained glass!
