Ready for Stitch In The Ditch!!
Finished sewing on the borders yesterday. I settled on the beige and giraffe print fabrics since I was out of the gold color and couldn’t find anything I liked on-line or in the stores.
I bought 6 yards of the giraffe print to use for the backing and binding. Any leftover, I think I will make a couple of pillows or pillowcases.
I have learned so much. Between getting tips from my quilter friends and the net, there were tons of resources to help guide me. Such as, the correct way to square up my fabric, measure and cut it. The different techniques for sewing on borders.
If you are thinking about learning to quilt, do a Google search or You Tube search on the quilting process. Hundreds, thousands of useful tips at your fingertips.
And so many pretty quilts. I have probably 40 quilts bookmarked. It will take years to make up all the ones I like.
But I am enjoying it.
