Back to quilting

Hoping to get at least 3 tops quilted this week in between my errands. The first one is done getting me off to a good start. This Strips and Strings Log Cabin top was pieced by Marsha.

It’s quilted with the pantograph Jilly from Keryn Emmerson – the top is flannel so there’s some really good loft and the quilting shows up well.

And it feels like Christmas as another box of backings arrived from Tish. Thanks to her I have lots of choice when it comes to pulling a backing for each of these HeartStrings tops. She writes that she feels blessed that she can help in this way but I’m the one who feels blessed to have someone give so generously. Each back she sends is well pieced, well pressed, squared up and ready to load on the longarm.

    Hi There Mary!

    Big fan of your blog and I stop by every day.

    I have a question for you. Can you please tell me how to square up a pieced backing?

    thank you,

    The quilting looks wonderful. I have Dawn’s DVD’s, and agree they are full of great inspiration and ideas for machine quilting. I even have a You Tube video showing how me and my machine dwirl. I think everyone has their own method. Tish and you make a great team! I would love for someone to make backings for me. That is the part of quilting where I get bogged down.
