Backing down and secured with painters tape. Don't pull it tight, just keep it from moving and wrinkling up. Batting down and smooth.
It's in the frame and I plan on sitting down and figuring out how I want to quilt it. I'll follow the design.
And I'm trying my hand at machine quilting. Not very good by any means, but you have to start somewhere!
Here's the next top on the design wall. I haven't appliqued down the "ferns". I'm just playing with shapes.
So what are you playing on today! It's raining out and I'm sewing. I need a mocha/coffee thing to get more energy going. Gray days don't give me much energy. So I need to put on a movie to listen to that has a lot of music or activity going on.
I don't understand why so many people are destashing their fabric collections. I want to play with all mine! Cut things up, mix and match. Try new techniques! Sew it all up! Don't be worried about mistakes... you can give those away to the relatives you don't like! Just get in there and have more fun!
PattyPs. Some one asked my why I don't get many comments? I don't know....anyone out there?
