Ah, no... honestly,  that's not necessary.   I haven't even thought of the shapes of the flowers or leaves yet.  I do have *plenty * of scraps at home to use.

It is hard to run out of stuff to work on. Good thing you have a backup project.

Texas quilt done - took longer than it should have.  Quilting not as good as I would have wished, but the recipient isn't a quilter and won't look that closely.  Amazing how well quilting shows up on that white background.  I still need to wash it - which has me very nervous too.  I presoaked everything except the fleece backing.  I'm testing that now and it does look like it's bleeding just a little bit, the water looks a little rusty.  So I'm going to give it the dawn soak and cross my fingers.

Looks good, Dee.  Fingers crossed that the red doesn't bleed.

When washing a quilt I think or know is going to bleed,I put two or three drops of dawn in the wash machine solves the issue.

That looks fantastic. I might have to make one of those. The dawn soak worked a treat on my red and whit with the one naughty fabric.
