On Tuesday night for some reason the quilt Hopscotch popped into my mind. Don’t know if you all remember that big scrappy quilt top that I made this summer –it was stored in the ” to be quilted box” and it was under The Postage Stamp quilt. I think I will put it on the quilting frame to pin baste before I put the Postage Stamp quilt on the frame to be hand quilted. That way I can have Hopscotch ready to machine quilt. I had to stretch it out to measure and see if I had a batting big enough – barely! I do have a backing as I ordered two when I was getting ready for the Postage Stamp. I will need to baste a little bit of batting on to one side to give me enough for this one. I never got around to this quilt as I would have had to pin it to the floor to baste and I kept putting it off.
Here they both are – airing out and will be ready in a couple weeks to get going.
A little more done on The Final Frontier
I love the definition that the wool batting has given the quilt.
Off to Little Rock today for my eye check up – I think the swelling has gone down in my retina – I know I am seeing better – one month down of eye drops four times a day and one other once a day – two more months to go I guess unless he says otherwise. Won’t get much sewing done today if any with my eye being dilated!
