WOW = Working On Wednesday
Today I'm washing my backing and border fabrics. The goal is to stick with this one quilt, start to finish. I don't think I have ever done that. Focus, focus. I'm hoping I can get the quilt rolled tight enough to machine stitch it on my DSM with my walking foot.
If not I'll either big stitch hand quilt it with perle cotton or tie it. Be still purists! I love tied quilts. They have such a primitive look. And I don't send my quilts out to a longarmer. Their work is lovely, but I want the quilts I make to be completely made by me. And my friends. Now if I owned a longarm, I'd use it for sure. I just don't want someone else to do it. Just my little quirk.
