Well another quilt bit the dust today. I got up this morning and went in the sewing room and Lizzie looked so sad sitting there all empty.
I looked through my many tubs of tops and found one I wanted to quilt. You see Gary aka Little Precious made this top for me a long time ago. It is called the Postage Stamp Quilt pattern. Or that is what we call it. Well I was going through my tubs and found it. Notice I said TUBS.
I was placing it on the frames to see if I have enough of the backing batting. I did.
To all you non quilters you want to see what the back of a top looks like. A MESS. To be such a mess only to have the front turn out so beautiful. That is like life. You may be gorgeous on the outside but a mess on the inside!
FOUND IT.. see it on the photo. It is face down. That is because when I finish quilting I do not want the good side on the inside and the inside on the outside! I am getting more and more like Edith Bunker by the day! I just ramble on. Help me if I start singing like she does.
The finished product. No it will not be used on a bed. It is mine all mine and I am going to as my Deara says “wad up in the recliner with it.” In other words I am going to use it in the winter when I am in the recliner relaxing.
I know you will not be able to see the quilting and all different colors of bobbin thread I used. What I did was I had about six bobbins that was either full or a little bit on the bobbin and I used them regardless of the color. I did not care about all the different colors of thread, it is mine and colorful like I am. It worked out well. I used up the bobbins only to turn around and fill them back up with my stand alone bobbin winder. I laugh sometimes at the garb I put on to go out somewhere. I just grab anything. Nothing matches and then I get a glimpse of myself in a mirror and think “girl you look like a rodeo clown.”
Front and back. I am crazy about it. Now I have to put the binding on. I will do that in all colors. Hey I may even take the back fabric and make a binding. I like different. Thanks Little Precious. I now have a treasure from you to me to keep forever.Agent Wade will be here tomorrow. I can’t wait.
