Friday night sew-in, that is. I spent part of the evening making myself a little doll quilt. I’m going to try and quilt it with embroidery….not just the running stitch that you see here, but some back stitch vines, lazy daisy flowers, french knots and whatever else comes to mind as I go along. I’m embroidering through the top, batting and backing. I’ll let you know how it goes!
Time was also spent organizing for today. In a few minutes, I’m off to a guild sewing day. We all work on our UFO’s (many people will be finishing off their show quilts, getting them all ready for our June 11/12 show). I’m going to do a demo this afternoon on proper measuring for, and attaching, borders and bindings so quilts will lie flat (in other words, how to avoid ripple-y binding syndrome). We’ll also talk about how to make and attach a 4” hanging sleeve to the back of show quilts.
I hope you have great plans for your Saturday!
