Sep 22, 2019: What a Day!!! Samira, Munirah's sister, is not the least bit shy,. She was so excited about all the quilts. As I showed her how to use the website to get an idea of what she would like, she kept finding lots of them that she liked. I think she up to about 4,000 favorites so far. Well, may only 10 or so. Having seen the back of the Lodge Quilt Joan made for me, she was sold on the idea of white whole cloth perhaps as the backing of something dusty mauve on front. Donna Kleinke's pattern sets are the place to start looking. Also check out Donna's website. Any quilting design used on the front of the quilt quilt will stand out on the back. Sep 25: Samira wants this panel sold by eQuilters.com for the center of her quilt. So much for dusty mauve. Bet I can work it in nicely in the borders. Sep 26: Ordered the panel. Need to expand this panel to an 80x100 quilt. Oct 02: The panel is here. When we get a chance, we'll plan this out. Dec 09: We have a plan ... except for how I will quilt it. Samira is leaving that to me...something I hate to do for someone else. Dec 10: Suggested backing options. Munirah made a choice for busy Samira so we have all our fabrics chosen, purchased & on the way. Dec 11: What to quilt? Considered Teacups & Roses and other roses patterns until I found Donna Keinke's Elegant Butterflies. Got a sec to speak to Samira who chose butterflies over roses. Perfect. Done & done planning. Dec 23: Top background white pearlescent weave fabric is here & gorgeous.
