The “Lake Home I Spy” quilt is pinned and ready to quilt…yay! Getting the layers together went beautifully..and quickly, now that I have figured that it is so much easier to work on my large kitchen dining table. Just takes some longer to figure things out. A fold-up cardboard, gridded, cutting mat makes keeping things lined up quite easy. I use low-tack painter’s masking tape to secure it to the table, then place the backing down (again, securing with tape after squaring), batting and top. All is easily straightened and on-grain/pattern without crawling around on my hands & knees!!!!! Too old for that!! The backing is Moda’s “Northwoods Crossing” by Holly Taylor. Got it on ‘super sale’ at Merry’s Stitchins in Jesup, IA. Is so perfect for the woodsy theme! I think that the back will be turning out as interesting for the grand kids as the top will be!
Now, I’m off to quilt………….
