Well now I have twelve 18 1/2 " blocks. Pic is of two of them. Now my big problem - a way I can quilt them. It is just too expensive for me to send everything to my long arm quilter. I don't want to hand quilt. I don't want to practice a lot. I don't like tying. I have a walking foot that works well. My last try at experiment in quilt-as-you-go was failure. Seems like no good way. Any ideas? Also do you prewash your batting? Have you ever quilted without batting?
Yup, I bought fabric. Spent $100. Probably should have put it toward the long arm quilter, huh? Anyway, this is a taste of it. The print is what I've been looking for the background for Tonya's letters. Of course I had to get some matching blue fabric for the letters, right? I'll show more fabric later. Nothing special. Two large cuts for quilt backings and some pieces for the stash. Okay, off for my hour of housework so I can quilt. :)
