It's a Color, It's a Word, It's a Flimsy!

The last couple of evenings I have been adding fabric strips to the ends of the word panels, and then trimming them to make sure they are perfectly straight.

before sewing them together.
Now it's a flimsy, and it measures about 42-1/2" by 50" (113 x 127cm). I will trim the top and bottom down a bit. Right now the white space above NIGHTHAWK and below CHOCOLATE is 4" (10 cm) and that's too big.
I've squared it up and I stay-stitched the flimsy all around. Next I will get the backing ready, and it will go out to Chris next week.

Oh, you want to see the backing fabric, do you? Well my son said he would never have chosen it, "but it's perfect;" and the camera battery died, so it's charging.

This is really neat, I hope the new owner loves it.

Yes! You picked the "either" over the "or" layout!
Looks great! Well, guess I'll have to tune in later to see the "perfect" backing fabric ... the suspense is building.
