I made a backing for this top.
I used the leftover light fabrics from the top
Supervisor Teddy tested it out.
Once he said it was OK I taped the backing to the floor . I have carpet in the studio so I taped the backing down with masking tape rather than tack it to the wood floor like I did in the old space.
I am using Hobb’s Tuscany cotton wool blend batting.
I spread out and smooth the batting on the backing then put on the top and smooth that out. Here it is layered and pinned.
It is hard to see the pins. I don’t use many.
I have a bag full of perle cotton thread leftover from several quilts and I plan to do the hand quilting with it.
It wont happen tomorrow. I have a lot of hand quilting to do first but It is good to have it set to go.
