Crazy Train, Fragments, Hoarders anonymous or Patriotic Confetti were all titles I thought would be great for this post. This small quilt came about as left over triangles from the quilt laying underneath it. I picked up a bamboo batting sample at market and wanted to test it out. In talking with Amanda about another project this one emerged.
So here is what I did. First I cut a piece of white fabric the size of the batting (18″x18″), then while I was following doctors orders and elevating my leg. I used a run of the mill Elmers glue stick and glued all the triangles on the square.
That was back in May, today I loaded it on my long arm.
I zigged and zagged all over the triangles and the background making sure all the triangles were secure. Funny thing about the quilting, it really was therapy. Stitching in every direction, no right or wrong.
OK, so that was front and back. I am not totally thrilled with the front, but like the look back. As for the batting, it quilted up nicely. I bound the quilt using a raw edge binding. It is currently in the washer to fluff and shrink.
So, how is that for a process description? I have been reading about the process pledge. I like the idea, but have this real problem of promising or wanting to do something but not being able to follow through. With me you get what you get, when you get it. I would really love to read a blog about the process of getting stuff finished or how to organize your life and house to help in finishing the quilting you want.
