I found the perfect bright/multi coloured backing for the Spool quilt at that big shed they sell fabric in, after I was unable find anything that "spoke to me" at my LQS.
And more importantly I found this backing for the Zig Zag quilt...how appropriate!
On Sunday I thought I needed a rest from quilting. I sewed the missing corners onto the Blue Reproduction 9 patch quilt. But the hunt for extra yardage (multiple phone calls Friday) was unsuccessful, so I ditched ideas of adding a border. And played with the left overs.
I now have lots of bindings to sew down! So I decided to do a bit more quilting, use up these left over 1.5" squares (from spool blocks) and make some coasters. I wanted wonky free lines, that was harder then I anticipated, however ditching binding in lieu of zig zag satin stitch was a very easy decision.
The weather here been stormy and predicted to not improve for the rest of the week, I will be inside stitching down bindings, where possible!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
