First – a link to the segway website with a photo of “Quilt Man”…well worth going! http://www.segwayonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3108
I linked this morning at “with thread in hand” and thought I’d share this with you. Early morning reading can be so much fun.
Last night I worked on the Benartex quilt and ran into a bit of a bunching up problem with the backing. One of the hazards of not basting a quilt. Yes, you read that right, I didn’t baste the quilt. Sometimes when a quilt is small enough and the fibers are sticking together I won’t baste at all. With this quilt it is smaller and trying to pin baste wasn’t such a hot idea and with the minkee on the back I was concerned about how it would stitch. The bunching up only on one corner where I wasn’t paying particular attention to smoothing the minkee as I stitched. So I’m frogging one corner. Other than that I love the minkee and will invest in some next time there’s a pregnant mom I need to make a quilt for. It’s lovely. I love the way the thread sinks in to the minkee and the quilting design is the “negative effect”.
Today I will finish this quilt, deliver another and get started on oh, so many more.
