Absolutely nothing but threads :)
I've been busy with my next Scrap Squad quilt.
This is one of the fabrics in the quilt backing. I really love it, and have been
I knew I couldn't cut it up to sew in the pieced quilt top, but why couldn't I put it in the backing as a whole piece??
Answer: because then it would be gone, and not in my fabric collection any more.
In my brief moments of sanity I know that this is just ridiculous. But I also know that you fabric collectors out there in blog land understand this dilemma. Coin collectors don't spend their collection, and stamp collectors don't use their prize stamps (do people even have those hobbies anymore?!?)
Sometimes it's hard to actually use your favourite fabrics.
But really the fabric is not "gone".
It is in a quilt.
I guess it's another "let it go" lesson that I wrote about yesterday. So I got over myself, and sewed it into the backing.
And on to the quilting...
I picked out these 3 thread thread colours for the machine quilting.
How many bobbins do you wind when you start machine quilting a big quilt on a domestic sewing machine? I wound 5 bobbins to start this time for a 70"+ quilt.
