Jun 01: First contact for this quilt.
Jul 12: Set date for quilting this together here at the cabin.
Jul 14: Elizabeth sent preview photo.
Jul 25: Elizabeth is here. We are quilting Butterflies & Stars with Magnifico on the back & So Fine! on the top. We finished quilting & fixing a mistake I made, squared the backing & made the binding. We wanted to attach the binding too but the day was long & home was calling. Elizabeth was missing her babies.
Jul 15: Quilt is here. Kathy selected Seaside as her pattern w/Statue Bottom Line thread. Using a 30% offset so the rows are not regimented.
Jul 20: Prepped ready to load.
Jul 21: Loaded ready to quilt.
Jul 22: Quilting. Looks like the plain background is going to show the quilting nicely.
Jul 24: Quilted.
Jul 14: This just came in. It dates back several years. My daughter gave me a small piece of fabric--There is no place like home--from this line dated 11/2010. Makes me wonder what else Paula might have tucked away in her closet.
Jul 19: Using Billowy w/Grey Bottom Line Thread. Quilted. Will try for a better photo tomorrow.
Jul 13: Dona brought 5 quilts including this one. I don't remember whether we couldn't use her backing or if she didn't have any. I sold her some of what I purchased back in April at the Ye Olde Forest Quilters Moving Sale.
Jul 26: Prepped.
Jul 27: Quilting is a bit tricky because there is wide flange inside the outer border. I have no choice but to quilt it down. No matter how careful I am to hold down the flange, the hopper foot gets under it, stopping the show until I can free the hopper foot which gets sewn into the quilt very quickly. Manage to stay ahead of the machine all but three times. Quilted.
Jul 05: The quilt is here.
Jul 07: Cut the binding strips. I will be attaching the binding only.
Jul 08: Prepping. The linen backing is very light weight & slinky. Finally got it square but Kit has agreed that she needs a different backing altogether.
Jul 12: New backing (108" x 72") is here from Fabric.com. Cut the backing down to size. Prepped ready to load.
Jul 13: Loading.
Jul 14: Quilted
