Quilting progress

Today I got the borders sewn onto the center I pieced two weeks ago, pieced the backing, and got the binding strip done. That is a good place to stop for the night, because the next step is to sandwich the layers together and baste this sucker. I intend to cheat and use spray basting; but before I can lay out the quilt layers I have to sweep the living room and move some furniture so I have enough room. This will be a twin-size quilt, which isn’t huge but is still bigger than our open floorspace.

The colors are a little off here, it’s less yellow in real life – the borders are a nice turquoise and the backing is lime green with multi-colored dots. The binding is dark brown with black swirls, and I think I’m just going to quilt this in straight lines across the center and then in a concentric spiral around the border.

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
