Hi diddly-o! Quilty friends! Another rainy Monday morning is allowing me to sew till my hearts content...YEEHAW! After wading though my fabric stash I've realized there's nothing in there. Well nothing usable for the current project. Wah..wah...wah...feeling like such a cry baby this morning. So what the heck, just do what comes natural and use what I have even though it doesn't tickle my fancy. This piece of vintage pink pieced with another print will be my backing for the Boonie Blooms.
And when I say pieced I mean they'll be cut into squares making a large checkerboard. This quilt will be quilted on the frame so the backing needs to be almost perfectly square. Squaring up backings is an area I lack proper skills. Normally I cut, and re-cut, then cut a few more times until the backing is to small for the quilt. Since I'm better at piecing and cutting smaller pieces of fabric, it seems like the less frustrating way to go. It'll also lend more time to think about how to quilt this girl. If the epiphany doesn't happen soon she'll be added to the drawer of "quilting quandary".
So here's what Podunk looks like this morning...WET!
My ole watering can isn't getting much love this year. So far it's working out for the best, I've been so busy trying to keep up on everything that watering the garden would be just one more chore added to the to-do list.
Well I better run and use my sewing time wisely before the sun pops out.
