I’d like to blame Mom but it was my poor memory that caused my problems today. I pulled a top of hers to quilt and found the backing wasn’t pieced, went upstairs to piece it, loaded it and the batting and it was too SMALL for the quilt.
By this point I’m thinking that wasn’t the backing but I can’t find anything else here so I call Mom and she thinks I told her I’d make a backing from my stash for it. I think this top has been here too long when I can’t remember a detail like that but I’m sure she’s right.
I figure it’s not a big problem, I’ll just pull a smaller HeartStrings top and use the backing since its already loaded….only I don’t have any small ones here. I don’t have any tops here small enough.
So up to the sewing room to make a Quick Strippie. One hour and 10 minutes from start to finish including the cutting and it’s so cute that I’m smiling now!
It won’t get quilted until tomorrow because I’ve got one I’m going to sit and bind this evening.
