It seemed to take forever to make the backing, I am trying to consciously use up older large cuts of fabric (so I can justify buying new fabric. With the saturated colours i used in the front of my Star Light, Star Dark quilt, I like to use strong colours on the back too.
It felt extravagant at the time to buy 2 yards of the morning glory print, the navy stars is a find off the discount table at Fabricland in Oshawa, the blue is from Connecting Threads, and the gray print from Cameo by Amy Butler was a potential dress for my daughter that never got made. I also found a nice big piece of Warm and Natural batting.
Only three weeks until my training program, I still don’t know what projects I should take, or if I should smuggle a machine into my room or not lol. If i get this quilted I may just take it as a binding project–golly, what am I going to use for binding?
And like usual, other projects sneak in. This bee block had tension issues, so i decided to make a pillow with lots of machine quilting instead of hand quilting it.
