Enjoy some of the action shots. . . . .
Here are a couple shots of my favorite squares in the quilt top:
What’s next? Well I’m going to be working on the applique letters on the back and do a slight variation from Mrs. Fransson’s back but it will be pretty much the same. Spray basting it (maybe I’ll do a little video for ya). Then on to quilting & binding the sucker. I’m thinking of doing just straight lines for quilting since my skills in machine quilting are below an amateur’s ranking right now. As time goes along and with plenty of practice I will get better (crossing fingers). For the binding, I’m going to use this cute brown fabric. I know I should probably use black – but keepin’ in line with the StashPact, use what you already have instead of buying more.
One thing I did take away from the tokyo quilt is pressing seams open might be a P.I.T.A but totally worth it. The blocks are super flat and honestly the seams still went together just as easy as butting them.
What’s on for my next quilt??? Well I’m thinking of a quilt for my sweet adorable mother in-law. Yeah, she’s the one that inspired me start quilting in the first place. So here’s a small preview of the fabric I’m going to be using. . . (yes Karla, you can blame Brad for the chickens)
