I'm stitching from our place in California now, and I find it's easier to finish things because I don't have all the distractions of my other life with grandkids, kids, longarm, quilt guilds, etc. this is the second of four eye spy quilts my grandkids and I have started. Two of them have the same busy sashing to make it harder to 'spy' and the third will have more of a solid sashing because I ran a it of this polka dot fabric. I don't want to buy more fabric, and didn't bring much with me to CA.
Before I left Montana, I was busy blocking, binding and bleeding a quilt. Oh, my, that was scary. All that work only to find that the red had bled all over the white. Well, thankfully for Vicki Welsh Publishing an article on bleeding a quilt, I followed her directions and it worked beautifully.
Here are the foam boards I tacked the quilt to.
The quilt is soaking in a hot bath of Dawn dish detergent.
I'm still struggling with publishing to this google blog from an Apple product, so my posts are few and far between. One day I'll have to make the leap to a wordpress platform...Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope all is well in your world.
