My design wall was used this week to put together the backing for my latest charity quilt. The rows are 2” wide and each piece are various lengths. I love the cat fabric at the top and the blue fabric is a Christmas theme which also runs sideways. I figure that each of them will give the recipient something special/fun to look at.
Then today everything got loaded on the frame.
And the quilting has begun. I am using Glide in both the needle and bobbin and all is going well.
The quilting design is something I saw in a video on The Quilt Show Weekend newsletter: Angela Walters.
I first drew this on a white board, boy did it look awful. However I have learned that I quilt better than I draw so I plunged ahead. I only have 2/3rds of the first row done but I feel I will finish soon.
And I even got the label done but forgot to take a picture so I will post it next week.
And, if you read my “on the needles” posts, you will want to catch next Friday’s post where I will be sharing the “funny on me” joke.
As usual I will be linking with Patchwork Times and then I hope everyone will be having a great week. Gari
