I was there just before my booked time and Jane and I looked at pantos and selected the thread. King Tut by Superior Threads was the choice -- one for the top and one for the backing -- both are variegated.
The batting was laid on next and then the top was centered on all of it. If I had cut the backing just a titch larger we wouldn't have to fiddle and fool with it, but we managed thanks to Jane. Thank goodness I wasn't left to my own devices on how to figure that one and only problem out.
As we rolled the quilt I went and looked at the back. I was liking what I was seeing, I can tell you.
I'm binding this one with the same black as the sashings. There is flannel on the back to keep a girl warm.
I'm going to bind this quilt with a gold fabric that has black stars on it.
The label is printed off and ready to sew on.
The pattern is large.....11 1/4" from top to bottom and it looks fabulous
I took this photo to show you the two quilts I donated to the store that hang on the wall in the long arm quilting room. The yellow and green one and the one to the left right next to it. Jane hangs them so people can see the different quilting that people can do. I was very honoured to see that.
If you ever want to long arm a quilt and live in my area, visit Sewing Machines, etc., and book an appointment. It's a lot of fun and you get to tell folks......I did it all myself from start to finish.
The story of the little cat quilt is coming. I'll post it sometime next week
