Mini Monday: More Color

I guess I should name this the AAQI Tree as I seem to photograph all my Priority: Alzheimer's Quilts here.

Hanging out
Another Monday, another mini quilt made.  The background fabric came from Pink Chalk Studio as part of their  Charming Solids club.  It's Mod Century Tweed Texture Red by Jenn Ski.

Variegated thread
 The squares and rectangles on the top are scraps of linen, solids, and shot cottons.  I randomly layered and placed them on the Tweed Texture, made a quilt sandwich and quilted straight lines using King Tut variegated thread at the same time securing the scraps to the top.

Floral backing print
The backing fabric is from my stash.  According to the selvage, it's "Fernhill's Hollyhock Dolls and" something ;-)  All that's left is to attach the binding and then it can be registered.

I haven't been doing as much sewing as I have been planning and thinking about know what I mean?!

Happy Monday!   Thanks for stopping by,
