Here is my basted "boy" quilt. Notice anything funny? Where are PINS?
I accidentally bought this batting (or they accidentally put in my order). It's FUSIBLE batting. I used it on a very small piece and decided to try it on this lap quilt.
Have you used this? What did you think? I'd love to hear your opinions.
I bought these clips at Lowe's to aid in all the pin basting I'll be doing soon. They are much easier to open/close than binder clips, but they hang off the table a lot, so I'm not sure about them yet.
See how bulky they are? :(
You would think I would have opened only one package....arrrggg.
According to directions you "simply" fuse all three layers with a hot iron. I did it one section at a time and was lucky that the top fit perfectly on the width. The back had a lot of wrinkling, despite going slow and being extra careful.
Funny when you work slowly and closely on something. What happened to this block? How did I not notice it until now?? It's staying, of course.
I've been using this toile' in different colors for years and never noticed that Judy's name is on the building!
I received some very special quilty gifts recently. This is a crystal thimble and is absolutely beautiful (and heavy).
Here you can see the size and facets. Beautiful. What a lovely gift for a quilter.
I also received these Coats thread collections for sewing on the go. They have 288 strands braided together and you pull out 1 at a time. Super cute tissues for my sewing kit. Thank you so much MC.
I'd like to say a special thank you to the Brownstone Quilters for their warm welcome home. Thank you to those who attended my lecture and/or workshop. I had a great time and can't wait to see your Hex blocks!
