I wasn't able to get any batting until this past Monday as I didn't want to buy the batting that our local Walmart carries. Then I spent two days trying to figure out how I could spray baste the layers instead of pin basting. Never could get that figured out and wasted way too much time thinking about it. So I set up my two long plastic tables in the 5th wheel and went to work pin basting.
It took moving it three times to get it all basted, but it worked. Thank goodness. I didn't really have time to think about how I was going to quilt it, but then it came to me.
On all the white squares I need my modern version of a snowflake. In the large light purple stars, I used my walking foot and did three trips around them and then some straight across lines in the middle of them. The background was just a lot of loop-da-loops. I had thought about doing something similar to strings of pearls only doing snowflakes, but I really didn't have the time of that, so I didn't. Maybe another day.
Then the binding. This wasn't a large quilt, but it sure seemed like it this afternoon as I was furiously hand stitching the back side of the binding down.
Today was Miles' birthday and I spent the whole day either at the sewing machine or at the table hand stitching binding so not great photo shoots for this one. We did go out to a delicious steak dinner to celebrate his day.
I hope to get back to posting more often. Since we returned from our summer adventures, I have had no energy and felt that I've had jet lag, only it would be travel lag.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy stitching.
