I worked on piecing backs and batting today.
My stash is pretty extensive but I have NO 30’s fabrics so finding a backing and a binding that works with this donated top was a challenge. Finally found a yard of a solid blue for the binding and a blue flannel print for the backing.
After all my hard work … I’ve got 4 ready to go. Three of them have pieced batting … and I’ve still got more batting pieces to use up. I figure that for every 3 tops I quilt, I can a free batting from the leftover batting strips and with batting as expensive as it is, that’s a bonus. I zigzag the pieces together on the sewing machine.
I’m knitting now while we watch the Lightning play and after the game I’ll go downstairs and hand stitch another binding.
