Still quilting I am......I managed to get all the top of the single bed quilt put together over Easter....520 squares to be exact. I had forgotten how long it took. I had to do 26 squares for the length and 20 across for the width, so it was easy to break it down to 5 rows of 26 squares each day over Easter!! Made the task more manageable.
This weekend I'm going to start the quilting. The process of sewing all the layers together. Again I'm going with cotton wadding in the middle and also this time I'm going with a coloured back to this quilt. The quilt I made for myself had a calico back, that you can see here. As this quilt is for a child., I just thought it should be a bit more fun and bright, so I've gone with a lime green and white polka dot print.....and the polka dots are huge and don't appear in the quilt at all, so it's a real contrast. Looking forward to seeing it finished, although I plan to do the quilting over the course of a week, not all in one day like I did last time!!
Once that's done I guess I'll have to commence the second one.....the pink one....might just start on the cutting process for this one over the weekend.....my least favourite job of all!
Hope you're all well.
