Well, April is more than half over and I haven't made a single post about my April UFO! I am fairly sure that I will be able to finish it on time, because I really like this quilt and I have been working on it, just haven't blogged about it yet. This quilt was the Layer Cake Quilt Along from last year (free instructions are still posted).
I love pin basting a quilt! I know a lot of people who dislike that part of the process, but I enjoy using my Kwik Klip tool. And this is a time for me and the quilt top to enjoy some quality time together. I ask the quilt "how would you like to be quilted?" and "what colour of thread would you like?" We have a great conversation (which I would deny if I was ever asked about it by a psychiatrist!) and we make the final decisions for the machine quilting.
This quilt has chosen it's thread colours, and has decided on squiggly line (that's the technical term!) quilting, making each block a little different to keep it interesting for me, and a double squiggly line in the sashing and borders. FUN!
And speaking of fun, are you signed up for FNSI? It's tomorrow night and I've planned a special party with my FNSI friends!
