S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y Night!

Had a bit of free time this weekend so mom and I scooted quickly down to Joanne's in Bellingham.  I have decided that "Basket Case" (the Boo Davis skull quilt) will be done with a PLAID background.  I know.  Genius.

I looked at the homespun and the colours all seemed really muted so I wandered over to the plaid shirting and found an amazing selection of really fabulous plaid flannel shirting.  My selections are below; I picked lots of brightly coloured plaids because, hey, go big or go home, right?

Plaid-y goodness.

I also got some grey herringbone that will be the backing and the binding, also slightly flannel-ish.  This quilt is going to be so snuggly.

As we're in line to get fabric cut, my mom turns to me and says, "It's going to look like the Bay City Rollers."  And then I remembered how much my young teenage self loved that Scottish power-pop band.  Look at this album cover!  It's a quilt!

It's a quilt adorned with cute 70s boys with fashion mullets!
I have a couple other things to get to first before I start Basket Case but I'm really excited to make it.

Don't leave until you watch this video!
