I was supposed to make the backing for Celtic Solstice and get it basted last weekend, but I got distracted.
My son's college roommate and friend was here visiting from Vermont this
weekend and I was busy cleaning and sprucing up after the holidays.
Phew, do the wood floors ever get dirty with the winter snow, sand and
salt being tracked in. I know they'll be dirty again in no time, but
for now they are gleaming again!
afternoon, I was way too tired to piece a backing and get down on the
floor to baste a quilt top. Instead, I worked in another of my 2014
goals - to learn English paper piecing.
I have a small rotating cutting mat that really helps with cutting out
For my first project, I'm going to make a traditional Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt.
I'm basting the hexagons using a fabric glue stick. It goes fairly quickly.
By bedtime on Sunday, I had completed my first EPP hexagon flower! I love it!
