hourglass quilt top
Talk about needing sunglasses! This photo was taken at 7:30 pm in my backyard when the majority of daylight was done.
This is one happy quilt.
And I love it! :)
It is going with me to quilters' guild on Tuesday night to be a part of the "show and tell" and then to the quilt shop here in town. I just want a solid back and I know she carries 90" width fabrics for backing, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that she has something that will work. It will get a 100% cotton batting and a medium weight "scribble" all over before coming back to me for the binding. But that won't be for awhile...she has a 3 month waiting list (!). Maybe one day I'll get myself a darning foot for my sewing machine and learn how to free motion quilt. But not now. Or in the next 4 months I am thinking either. :)
Goodbye for now - I am hoping to see you before the end of the summer so we can picnic on you before the snow flies!
Other sewing news: finished 8 more "I Spy" bags...ready to be filled, stitched closed, and played with! These are heading out to Spearfish to be passed around a toddler busy bag exchange...more on that later...
