I found a great fabric for the backing of my improv trees online for a great price in Hancock's sale bin so I took a chance that the colours would work and ordered it. By the time you pay duty, and with the low Canadian dollar, it really doesn't make good sense for me to order from the States, but the stars aligned for this one. Happy I took the chance because it's going to be perfect (it's the piece on the left).
That lovely orange Philip Jacobs floral came with my Hancock's order - I just couldn't resist - as did the pale blue Anna Griffin floral at the bottom of the pile. Another great deal, which is good because I needed enough for the backing of a project that I haven't even started!....M

It's Superbowl Sunday so there will be lots of football on TV today. No more time to play with borders and bindings right now cause I've got a pot of chili to make. May the best team win (even though I'd love for Peyton to go out on a high)!....M

You'll recall that most of the fabrics that I am using for this quilt were the remnants of the original quilt that mom made approximately 15-20 years ago. That includes the tiny yellow polka dot fabric for the sashing, so to expect that I'd be able to pick up any more now should I need it is a big stretch.
FINALLY, I just dug out the fabric and solved the puzzle. I've cut all of the star sashings and there's still a good piece left over for the rest of the triangles that I need. Sheesh - no need to worry at all. Gotta wonder why it took me so long to get to it, but it's nice not to have that rolling around in my head anymore....M
