I have not started the binding on Joseph’s Coat – I thought I had enough black to do black binding but I don’t. I really, really do not want to buy more fabric unless I need to. Then I remembered the batik grayish color I bought at the quilt group meeting last week – more than enough, it isn’t plain black which is what I had intended to use – but it is the same kind of fabric that a lot of this quilt is made up of – Bali Water Color Batiks. I think it will work out, what do you think? EDITED: (I’m off to Hobby Lobby to get some Kona Cotton Black for the binding – the batik just isn’t grabbing me for this)
Here are some of the many colors in this quilt next to that fabric – I have nothing that is this color in the melons. But please do not suggest making a multicolor binding – good idea but I totally ran out of a lot of the colors used.
The Bow Tie Quilt – I worked twenty minutes here and there yesterday and got this much done. I take the t-tacks off of the quilt top as I quilt to keep the pins in as little as possible. It is still held in good with the tacks on the backing/batting.
And I thought until I get Joseph’s Coat completely done I would stick with one other top right now to work on. I thought I would get busy and put the rest of the blocks together for Lucy Boston, Patchwork of the Crosses – I have about 18 blocks or so that are finished. When I get done with the binding on JC then I will get the Common Bride quilt back out and get busy on that one as well.
Does anyone have this disc with quilt label patterns on it? I am wondering is there anyway to type in your words and have it completely printed out without having to actually write your information on it?
Here is an example of one of the designs that I printed out on paper – I opened it with Word but I can’t get a text box to open within the empty area in the middle of this – anyone know how to do this? I do have some color pens that I will use to “color” the design. I used to have a good program that printed out in color nice little photos and such but it is old and I no longer have it as it no longer worked on the newer computers that I have had in the last 5 years or so. Normally now I just print out text on treated fabric to use but thought I would play with this a little bit. (no instructions came with it that I saw anywhere – just the clip art). I have 3 quilts that need labels – I’m usually very slow at getting labels on.
