Shoo Fly

Shoo Fly
61 x 67 inches
QOV #135
Shoo Fly used the last of the eagle napkins, so I can officially cross them off of my UFO challenge sheet. I considered making individual quilts with the final four napkins, but I was growing weary of working with them. I'm sure you are getting tired of seeing them, too.

I do like how the outside design on the napkins creates a secondary pattern around the center burgundy block, made from fabric donated by Judy. The red border was also some yardage from Judy.

This quilt is named for the huge "shoo fly" block in the center.

Quilts made using the eagle napkins:

    Clean Sweep

    American Spirit

    Super Moon

    Morning Star

    Shoo Fly

  1. Great idea - I do love the way the four napkins create another border. Very, very pretty. And another UFO challenge scratched off!!

  4. Wow! That is such a striking quilt. Using all four napkins created a lovely design. I, too, love the borders in each one.

  7. Who would have ever thought of using napkins for quilts. So clever!
    Now that I think about it Daddio was always trying to steal cloth napkins from restaurants and hospital telling me he could use them for quilting. I blamed it on the dementia. Maybe he had something there after all!

  10. They look beautiful all together. This might be the prettiest one of them all.

    I was wondering why it was called a ShooFly quilt. It makes perfect sense once you explained it.

  11. I like the effect of the swirly lines in the napkins! Well done! :)

  12. I got tired of working with red, white and blue quilts last summer. I've got one started but it's going to stay on the UFO list for a while.
