I finished my Ship! Now I am going to do a lining in the bag to keep the stitches from showing in the back. Which one do you like better? The dots or the plaid? I am leaning in one direction but I will not tell, I don't want that to change your mind.

I thought I would share with you today a quilt that is in my Etsy Store. For the moment it is the only thing in my store, but I am working on that.
I did something a little different for me and backed this quilt with a print instead of a solid or muslin like I usually do. I think it made it special to do a print on the back and it really makes the binding pop from the back.
I ended up calling this quilt the "Time Traveler" quilt because of the amazing fabric used. It is filled with old bikes, clocks, stamps, travel stamps and flowers all with a sort of Victorian flair, even slightly steampunk in a way. It makes one want to go there, back in time.
Anyways, this quilt is up in the shop, head on over there if you are interested. It would make a great gift for a friend or for yourself!
