Phunny Phorty Phellows are a group of Carnival enthusiasts who celebrate Twelfth Night by masking (costuming) and riding the St. Charles streetcar to usher in the season.
So what does all this have to do with quilting? Not much really - only that I had a King Cake-fueled afternoon of sewing and have a finished Rainbow Scrap Challenge project to show for it!
I finally finished assembling the Granny Squares I made during the 2012 Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I had to remake several of the grannies as they just didn't fit right. Then I decided the blocks and sashing alone did not make an adequately-sized quilt. I added additional borders and I'm happy as can be with the result. The picture doesn't do it justice (it's rainy and dreary here, so no chance of natural lighting), so just to help you visualize I also snapped a pic of the border and sashing fabric - confetti!
It's off to my local longarm quilter for some overall swirly quilting. This will be gifted to a family member I will be visiting in February, so I now I have a deadline for finishing!
