Working on Plan B

I got all my "work" done yesterday morning and was able to spend some time in the afternoon working on shop samples.  Last month I made this pretty quilt using a panel, ombre strips and a pack of 5 inch squares:

Happily we sold all the 5 inch squares, but still have about 20 panels left!  That means that another sample is in order.  (And I get to add this one to my Etsy shop!)

Unfortunately we don't have any other coordinating fabrics, so that meant looking for a different fabric to go with the panel.  After trying several, I came up with the idea that we could cut our own squares in coordinating fabrics.  I started pulling fabrics in the red and green colors, then came up with this great fabric that would make a perfect border after all!  So I brought them home with me for a new quilt.

Luckily this quilt only has three borders, so it went together super fast!  I just love the "glow" that the ombre strips give to the borders, don't you?

I'll do some simple quilting, and it will be ready to go the quilt shop next week.  Now to work on sample number two - I don't think this one will take too long either, and I get to make some cute butterfly blocks for it!

Linking up with Myra for Finished or Not Friday!  Join in and show what you are working on this week, too!
