Her photo was sent to me by her keeper, Angela who writes:
So you wanted pics of us and quilt cam. Well patty cake knocked over the iPad. You moved and she was trying to get you. LolCUTE! It does look like Patty Cake is batting at my face…I can just imagine it from her kitty cat point of view….funny!
I’ve been working all day on this backing…..
And vacillating on whether this is the best use of my time, or just the best use of my fabric that I want to use up.
I think it’s a bit of both.
I mean, I could easy seam two lengths of yardage together with one seam and have a backing in about 15 minutes --- or I could buy wide backing and not have to seam it, and the quilt would be well under way to being quilted now.
But instead I spent the entire day ironing, cutting, stitching columns and joining columns together to get this random mess:
But you know what? I really like it! I think it will do just fine. It was a fun no-stress day. I cleared out a ton of shirt parts, and it’s going to be a very fun back. No one else will ever make a back exactly like this one….And the quilt will be interesting to look at front and back!
Tonight I’m planning on putting the wing triangles on either side of the string geese ----
And I’ll start joining them into pairs, into fours, into eights etc ---to get this quilt center together.
Want to come join me? Bring a project! I’m turning on the cam in the studio for a while!
