The center of Handful of Scraps is now finished and will be put aside a couple days or a week while I work on other things – I just really wanted to finish that center for some reason so was really concentrating on it the last couple of weeks. I believe I started this quilt on May 12th two weeks of work already done! This measures about 28 inches from point to point. I am linking to Em’s Scrapbag: Moving it Forward, and Cooking Up Quilts; MCM #22
I am now on the last row of Winter Wonderland!! When I get to this point I unpin from the 3rd rod in the back as part of the row is pinned to that strip of fabric. As you can see from this photo it has to be unpinned so you can do your quilting. I unpin and roll the back rod pulling that strip of fabric back.
I then pin the quilt top to the batting and the backing – it is the final row so it is smooth and nothing really needs to be tightened at this point. I do pin the fabric from the back row to the batting as I need that area of support to hold my laptop while I watch shows and quilt at the same time.
Now ready to start that final row!
