How is everyone doing on this wonderful sunny day? If it is not sunny in your area I’m sorry to hear that. We are finally getting warm temperatures and no rain in sight – so far anyways.
This past weekend has been a bit busy, but in the end was a really good one. I had a sew day in Millarville on Saturday to work on the Bible Block quilts now that all of our blocks are finished. I had posted three possible options for my setting and decided upon
I had that finished pretty early so I started working on my Thimble Blossom’s pattern called Wild Thing. I had cut out all the pieces – or so I thought and just needed to piece them together. I put one block together just so I could see what it would actually look like.
I’ve been slowing quilting a secret project this week (started last week) as well. I’m sorry to say it has been a pain in the rear. I honestly have no idea how to properly do a backing and I seem to still not get everything as tight as I want it to be so it is not as tight as I would like.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to do a proper backing?
how about getting a tight quilt sandwich so I don’t have puckering when I’m quilting?
Oh, and how about marking a quilting pattern on the quilt so it doesn’t go away while you move the quilt around? Like chalk does.
