Working With Homespuns

I love the look of homespun fabrics - the plaids, the colors, how they get softer and softer in the wash, etc.  But I cannot love how the squares slip and slide and stretch during the sewing process!

Nevertheless, I am putting together this little quilt that has mostly homespuns mixed with a few flannels.  It will be very cozy when its finished and backed with snuggly flannel.  I am using scraps, triangles and leftover blocks that were sent to me by a fellow Sunshine Quilt Guild member.  It's just plain fun to work with someone else's stash sometimes!

I am adding blocks at the top and bottom to make it just a little larger, then it will be ready to quilt.
