I went down to the Basement looking for a piece of fabric I knew was down there for a backing. I found the fabric and then came across a quilt I had started Foundation Paper Piecing a couple of years ago. The bag contained all the fabric and most of it was already cut out. I thought I would take it upstairs and finish it.
I took it upstairs and started unpacking the bag looking at all the pieces etc and found to my horror that I had only made ONE block. Well, if I hadn't have cut all the fabric out I would have made it into a cushion cover and called it a day. So, I started making blocks and am really enjoying the FPP again. It is a Christmas quilt and might just be done in time for Christmas.
I basted a quilt yesterday all ready to start quilting. It is a fall quilt of tumblers - fairly big tumblers in fall fabric from my stash. I used a new to me method of basting. I rolled the backing, batting and top onto individual plumbing tubes covered in foam which my dear husband helped me make. I thought I would be sitting at the dining room table basting this but it turns out this quilt was too large for that so I still did it on the floor but it was so much more manageable. I usually use another person to help me layer the quilt, but all my chickens are away. So I have had to come up with a method where I can keep the whole sandwich taught and straight. This worked like a champion. I have kitties that love to help by walking all over the layered quilt making it wonky.
I hope you are having a good week and I wish you a wonderful weekend. Thank you for visiting.
