Think I'll finish in time?
Basting in progress. I wrap the layers on boards to make them 'taut'. The very bottom shows the inside of the quilt to top. You can see the long white stitches that are the basting.
I designed this quilt. There are some patterns. The barns and houses are paper pieced. Makes it easier and faster to make little tine triangles.
The big Uncle Sam is a Country Threads pattern. It is just a regular rotary cut pattern. Don't look too close the shoes don't meet the legs. I'll applique something over it to 'hide' my mistake. HeHe.
The applique angel is a Jan Patek pattern I think. Don't remember for sure. The house above has last attached to the edge of the roof.
And a silly boy. My plan is to hang the quilt above the mantle. I'm about 3/4's done quilting. I need to look for fabric for the binding so I'll be going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow to see if I can find what I want.
The Cowboy has been put in charge of making a hanging system.
I hope you enjoyed my little work in progress!
Have a Good Day.
I will I love sitting at my sewing machine!
