Is what’s next. The batting has been trimmed, as has the backing………… (for details of this process, see the 2 preceding posts). The next step is to clip the curves of the backing in order to wrap the fabric over the batting……. I secure it slightly with Sewline Water Soluble Glue Pen. There are other types of adhesive available but this is what I had on hand. I, then, stitch next to the finished edge to stabilize it further. The final edge will be “matchsticks” (or maybe I should say “toothpicks”?). Lots more “toothpicks” in my future!
Thread:(top) Aurifil, 50wt;(bobbin) Connecting Threads Essential Pro poly, 70wt. Batting:Hobbs Tuscany cotton/wool blend (single layer). Stitched on Ms Juki (Juki 2010Q).
Thanks so much for stopping by! The days are so much shorter and chillier with rain/snow mix in the forecast for tonight. November is fast approaching……perfect quilting weather!!!! Till next time………..
