Saturday Miscellaneous Stuff
Happy Saturday to all! We are going to the BIG sale at Nancy’s Notions today that I mentioned on Thursday. I sure hope we can get the spinning mat – that will really make cutting and trimming blocks easier.
I have taken a few minutes to start the spiral quilting on the 16-patch and framed 4-patch quilt. Here is a shot of the beginning circle;
I pulled the bobbin thread up to the front side. Eventually I will bury it in the batting layer. I haven’t decided if this circle is too big or not – what do you think? If it is, I can always go back when the rest is finished and add another row or two. My plan is to keep the rows about 1/2″ apart. I sure hope it goes well! They say the first few rows are the hardest . . . If you’re interested in reading about the spiral tutorial, I mentioned it in this Finding Nemo article and the link is there.
We’ll be back next week with our purchases and hopefully a road trip quilt shop report as well. Enjoy your weekend! I hope it a productive one for you. ~smile~
