Quilting, quilting, quilting!
The two rolls are ready to be sewn together and that was part of the task I set for this week.
That is how they look now:
I used different FQs, some that I had on my stash and some that I bought.
But I needed more than I thought (I have my problems with math...) and so I ordered the rest.
Well, I'm still waiting for them!... A short break? No, that is not on my plans!...
Here is the back:
I love the dolphins, they look so happy and pleased, as if they were always smiling.
I trimmed the sections and layed them right sides together. Then I cut stripes 1 1/2" ( here I realized it can be a little bit less, all the seams and the batting make quite volume!). I had to pin all the layers together to sew:
I trimmed the batting away just a little bit more. Then I pressed the strip under 1/4" and used pins to secure it in place for hand sewing:
I hope to get my order soon! There is some more quilting to be done!!
Fortunately, I have so many other projects on the go that I can't get bored!
And I can start to sew the borders. Anne Ida gave me such a great idea, I love the border she thought of! But, I don't have more fabrics for that...
According to the challenge rules, the top should be sewn only from the stash. It is allowed though to buy some fabric for the backing and batting. So, I guess I have to work on the stripes I have left.
I could also sew some pouches and other bags! I have loads of patterns!....As my DJ says, I have a little bag for every day AND night, too! :o)))
I wish each of you a lovely and creative week!
