Back in the mid-1990's I was getting back into quilting so when a found a line of bright almost solids at my local fabric store I bought a yard of each colorway.
Fast forward to 2015...I still have some of that fabric.
It is like the millennium fabric - every time I clean the sewing room I find a some hidden in with other fabrics or projects.
It isn't like I didn't use the bright fabric.
This small project was the first to use these fabrics (which I believe came from Clothworks? If anyone knows please comment!)
It is also the first quilt that I machine quilted...not saying I did a good job but I did machine quilt using only a magazine article for instructions. (Backing my first machine quilt project in flannel was not a good idea...)
It was also the first time I paper-pieced.
That I did a decent job on.
But really, I have been dragging the little project around from almost 20 years. I don't see myself using it on a wall (show that stitching...not even sure I should put it on my blog!)
So tonight I am making a bed for my dog Watson. The last of the fabric is being cut into 2-1/2 inch strips. The end of an era! (and add that to the 20% of stuff not going back into the sewing room!)
