I’ve made some major progress on two quilts in the past few days.
Anything Goes is quilted. The vertical lines you all gave me the go on look awesome! I didn’t go organic in their nature, but stick straight.
There are a few blocks that float off the edge of the quilt. I created a binding with the same strip piecing as the blocks to complete the missing side. I used the same technique showcased in Fresh Cut.
The front is mostly linen and the back a flannel in deep green. I used a load of leftover strip piecing and one lonely block to finish it off. It was a bear to square up in the end and I was happy I’m an over baster, because linen and flannel married like to move around a lot.
My only regret is not going a little further between lines. The drape of the quilt with these two fabrics was so lovely and next time I’ll give those lines a little more breathing room to keep the softness.
This afternoon with the back door open and that robin singing, I had time to baste Psychedelic Baby.
I’ve got a quilting plan AND the day off tomorrow.
Life is good!
