Don’t you just love it when packages arrive in the mail from quilting shops! I had a big box – batting – two of them. Now I have what is needed to quilt both the next quilt on the frame – The Final Frontier and Wagon’s West on the machine. I made sure to get the same kind of batting so that the scraps from both of them can be put together and used for a couch size quilt or a baby quilt. Yes this is 100% wool for a change, I know I will need to be careful when it comes to washing the quilts and will need to only have in the dryer for a very short time, I wanted to see how I liked it though and was on a very good sale. I will add a note to the label about the batting so I won’t forget.
This is the backing for Wagon’s West – I do need to piece it so I guess I better get busy this week – I have this back to sew together and a very big back for the Final Frontier – some purple fossil fern that I showed last week. I have not gotten around to it. I do want to get both sewed though before I get started machine quilting as when that starts nothing else will get to the machine for a couple weeks at least.
Winter Wonderland was rolled down and started on the 3rd from the last row last night.
The 6th of the diamond shapes for Handful of Scraps is in the works and should get done today if I set my mind to it. Linking to Esther’s blog.
