I loaded up the latest top-this is how I cut the batting and backing ; it is easier than laying out flat! Just quarter your top, batting and trim larger than your top and then the same with the backing. Easy.
I tried a new to me technique , ruler work .
It was a learning curve but I enjoyed the challenge.
Then for some reason I could hear a difference and sure enough,
when I looked underneath there were all these snarls.
AND WORSE-I COULD SEE I HAD LOADED THE QUILT BACKING UPSIDE DOWN SO THE WRONG SIDE WAS OUT. I WAS 2/3 OF THE WAY DONE. WHAT TO DO? EAT CHOCOLATE. SERIOUSLY.
I powered on with the top , finished it and pulled it off the frame.
I admired my lines and design and the puffy stars.
The appliques and meanders.
BUT NOT THE BACKING.
THE BEAUTIFUL PIECED BACKING.
I loaded another piece of backing on late last night
and quilted 'stitch-in-the-ditch' to hold the backing to the rest of the quilt.
Today I will bind it and no one will know the heartache that this little mistake caused me!
(Shhh, don't tell!)
