I like using blendy, neutral colored threads in my quilting and for bright kids quilts most often I choose a bright green. This one is called spring green.
I wasn’t sure what I was going to quilt on this top until I pulled and pieced the backing. My blowing leaves panto is still on the table and I’m going to use that one again.
I also pulled fabric to add a border to this little hourglass top. It was one I was going to quilt here on my regular machine but now that I’m going to quilt it on the longarm, I’ll make it a little larger.
And finally, I trimmed and got the binding machine stitched on Mom’s Bear Paw. I’d intended to get this done and sent back to her the week we got back from Big Canoe but that didn’t happen with the moving van arriving that Wednesday and time has just gotten away from me since then between the unpacking, the headaches, and my company. I figured if I didn’t do it today, it would be another week because Chris and his family are coming tomorrow night for a long weekend.
The Minkee backing feels great on this one but it makes a big mess so I wanted to trim it and get the binding on before sending it back. Mom is SO patient and never pushes me to get things done for her.
