|This is a true beginners project. When I made this (obviously using scraps) I had no idea about matching corners, or trimming threads, or cutting things the right length. It's pathetic.|
|There is no batting. I spread the top and bottom out on the floor, smoothing it out flat. And then pin basted it together. I'm not sure how it will turn out with my wavy borders but so far so good.|
|I also spent a lot of hours on the 1857 QAL. I back basted one of the September blocks and 14 of the border and corner blocks. I just arranged them around this block for the picture. The border is different than anything I've ever seen in a reproduction quilt. I need to baste a bunch more and then get busy with the applique.|
So, I've kept busy but I never get as much done as I think I will.
I enjoyed looking at everyone's Gwennie Inspired Quilts this week. Such creativity.
And speaking of creativity. . . I also enjoyed Audrey's latest post. She's got me intrigued about the new book she is reading. Kinda quirky but interesting.
