And I'm still stumped on fabrics for a quilt for my dad. Why is this one so hard????
So, I loaded this one on the frame while I think about Dad's quilt.
|Project Linus upholstery samples quilt|
Since it's made with upholstery fabrics, I decided to try backing it with a lightweight fleece and not including batting. Then, I realized that I could get a large piece if I purchased a fleece blanket, rather than yardage (60" width) That eliminates a thick backing seam. The price was similar or perhaps a little better than purchasing yardage.
|I rewound a little here ...|
|Vertical seams are filled in with a back-and-forth winding line.|
|Here's the fleece backing ... in hindsight, a light colored fleece would have been better since the thread is a light Aqua colored cotton.|
So now that I've spent a little time posting, I think the thunder is gone. That means I can plug in those power cords again and finish this one soon.
Jambalaya is smelling great in the crock pot. Our family is planning to watch a movie (Les Miserables) and cuddle under quilts and blankets tonight. I rarely watch tv or movies, but I'll try to sit still tonight. I've heard this is a good one.
Enjoy your evening.
