And, fresh in from Fat Quarter Shop, here are the backing and binding. I am a sucker for a cheater print as a backing. At a glance, it will look like I have spent many hours on both the front and the back. I figured, if I went to Fat Quarter Shop and typed "Old Glory" into the search box, I'd come up with something suitable for the backing and binding and hey presto, not only were these two perfect BUT they were on special offer too. Gotta love Fat Quarter Shop. What you want, when you want it and at a great price. Wow, I could be a copywriter for bad ads.
But here's a quick question for all of you out there. When you see projects like this and fabrics like this, do you think - wow, wonderful - or do you think - eww, old fashioned and overly traditional. I won't be in the least offended either way but I am genuinely curious to know how readers of this blog view these kinds of fabrics and projects.
