Raise your hand if you didn’t think I would make it through the weekend without starting the new quilt.
I posted the top last time
I had the idea in my head so it really only took about 10 minutes to draw it on the fabric. (45 inches wide and 70 inches long) I use a disposable #2 mechanical pencil to mark the top. I always was finished quilts and the pencil has always washed out for me.
I layered and pin basted the top using off white backing and Mountain Mist poly batting (I don’t want lots of crinkling from shrink like I would get with cotton batting)
I will use all of these threads.
I am starting by quilting over the lines with a back stitch in black.
I will do a demo of that stitch soon.
Then I plan to fill in all the spaces with the different colors of perle cotton. I did a quilt a few years ago with perle cotton and tons of filling
the difference in the new quilt will be no feathers and lots of different colors of thread filling the spaces.
Teddy says hi…but he only poses once a day so no picture tonight 😉
