It has been a busy week here!
All these 5" squares and I have been at WORK!
I love the way the flowers, polka dots and stripes melt into ONE fun baby quilt!
When I ran out of squares....
I dug around in my 5" stash and found these elephants!!
and SO fun!
The back was pieced using some leftovers chunks.
My stash doesn't usually have pieces BIG ENOUGH for the whole backing.
I'm trying really hard to USE WHAT I already OWN!
but a FUN challenge.
I also quilted this quilt top that had been folded up
and ready to GO!!!
Since I was quilting ONE...I might as well keep the momentum going!
What I thought would be quick and trouble free....
I found out it IS POSSIBLE to quilt...rip out....and quilt again!!
All it took was ONE movie to do the UNSEWING!
GOOD THING It's a BABY QUILT!!!!
Here's the reason:
When I pieced the backing I patted myself on the back!
Aren't those prints perfect for each other??
Then I lined it up with the quilt top and the batting
OR SO I THOUGHT..
they were straight.
I happily went about quilting lines
and trimming the quilt.
It didn't take me long to decide it needed a DO OVER.
I found another piece of fabric to use for the backing...
quilted it again
and NOW I'm HAPPY.
I even enjoyed that movie as I RIPPED!!!
A little advice.
DOUBLE and triple check if you want your backing to be straight.
IF it's NOT...
Don't be afraid to rip!!!
