Oh, I am so super excited to share these photos with you! Look, a completed quilt top:
Here I am, laying out my backing in a very scientific and precise way to measure, or something like that.After cutting two lengths that way, I sewed them down the middle to make my backing. I looked around, but we were out of batting, so at 8:43 I left in a hurry to get to Hancock before they closed so I could actually start quilting. I made it.
After taking the quilt outside on the driveway and using quilt spray adhesive, my blanket sandwich was ready to quilt. Aubrey came outside with me. That was interesting.
"No, don't touch the spray adhesive."
"Can you bring me back the lid?"
"Stop walking on the blanket, honey."
"PUT DOWN THE SCISSORS THIS INSTANT." Yep, she cut a tiny slit in the border. I was going to take a picture, but I forgot. I guess she really wanted to "help" with her quilt. Ack!
But after sweating (literally) over getting it all prepped, I got to sweat while quilting, so in the end, it was worth it. See:
A close up of the quilting. I'm doing some organic, playful lines. I'm about 1% done with the quilting.
