Do you remember me saying that for every quilt I start before the end of the year, I need to finish one? I’m trying to get that 2020 UFO number to 25 (or lower)! Since I started the Chandelier Quilt, I quilted the Bow Ties tonight.

Pantograph is Happy Times and one of these days I’m going to remember to save my file once I have everything set up in Pantovision … tonight I had two rows quilted and while I was rolling and getting ready for the next row, the tablet decided it needed to update windows!! While I was waiting I got more of the Chandelier top assembled but once it was updated, I had to rebuild my file before I could finish quilting.

Isn’t this the perfect backing for this quilt? It’s a flannel fabric I had in stash and it looks like I bought it just to go with this quilt.


  1. You couldn’t have picked a better backing fabric had you taken to flimsy to the shop with you & matched it there! Perfect-o! Unlike your evening with your ‘puter. I know the feeling… I was mid-good-movie last weekend when my TV receiver decided it was time to “rebuild” its list. Argh!

  2. That is a perfect backing. Love the giraffes! Do you pre-wash your flannel? I have been much happier with it for backing since starting that.

  3. Looks great! What size accuquilt bowtie die did you use? Fun to read about your goals and achieving them.

  4. In my younger days, a friend and I used to say that if you buy enough clothes, you will find things that go together. Now I’m older and have little need for new clothes, but I’m finding the saying also goes for fabric.
