Today's goal is to pick out backing fabric for everything and stitch a whole bunch of pieces together. Things go much quicker when the backing fabrics are all sewn together in a veeeeery long strip and then pinned once to the frame. That way I can put 5 or 6 quilts on before having to put more backing fabric on.
How many of you have trouble giving up fabric for the backs of quilts? I have some really cute fabrics, but just can't seem to use it for the backs of quilts. I keep pulling it out and thinking, this would be so cute for a quilt. So, back into the stack it goes.
I think I will head to the shed this morning and pull in a bucket of fabric and just call it backings. That way it doesn't have a chance to be 'cute' and get used for the front of the quilt. Besides, the backs of the quilts need to be cute too.
I think with these 30 quilts, we will just about be at the goal of 150 quilts. It is really hard to keep track of how many quilts are where. I have the number on the side bar, but I'm not sure that is accurate. I'd rather send over a few extras just in case.
But I do know that I've now quilted over 100 quilts this year since Jan 1. You can see the list on the side and I'm over 100, but there are still a couple on the list that are just tops, so I think I hit 100 yesterday, but again, counting has never been a strong point for me :) Good thing I teach science!
