# 6 is quilted

Thanks to Sheree from HeartStrings handing me a bag full of backings already pieced, and Barbara in FL sending the binding already made along with this donated top, this one was loaded, quilted, and the binding has been sewn on and is in the pile to be handstiched down during the Olympics.

I used the same pantograph – Feather Me – that I used in top #4. I like it, it was already on the table and lined up, and it saved me a bit of time especially since it’s a quick one to quilt.

By the way, did you notice the tub of batting in the first photo? I lugged it upstairs so I can zig zag some of the pieces together – can’t let all that go to waste even though I’m not fond of piecing batting.

  1. mary, if the batting is cotton or a blend, get some of the cheapy fusible INTERFACING. straighten the edges of the batt. cut strips about 3″ of the interfacing. fuse to one side to connect them. only one side is necessary. the stuff is so light that you can’t tell when you machine quilt it. no funky lumps or dips. try it, you might like it. patti – pleal@cfl.rr.com

  2. The quilting looks great! I had to cringe when I read you prior post…periodically I make lists like that but now I’m afraid it would be a waste of paper!
