Quilt For Sale!
Last week I was working on quilting a quilt for the CO West Quilt Guild sale booth at the quilt show coming up in March. Gini pieced the quilt and donated it to the guild. I volunteered to quilt it.
It turned out to be a very fun quilt to quilt and I am happy with the way it turned out.
But, alas, I found them on the floor after I was all done quilting, along with several other items I knocked off with the quilt, like my ironing cup, phone etc.
I have a folder of free motion quilting ideas that I cut out of magazines, plus numerous books. I like to search through these before I begin quilting to give me ideas. I found the idea for the leaf border in my folder.
Gini had the binding all prepared and ready to sew on. Very cleverly she had wound it on an empty thread spool to and tied a ribbon around it to keep it nice and neat.
I thought this was a great idea to pass along. I love getting the binding sewn together and pressed before I start quilting. This will keep it all nice and ready to go.
