I chose this fabric for the backing. I had already picked the thread and done the pantograph. When the fabric line is called Rainy Day, you kind of think of water. I chose "Splash" and the thread is Laguna.
So you take this:
and you use this:
spend some time at the long armThis quilt turned into the quilt from you know where.
I tried three times to quilt it and three times I took it off the frame, unpicked rows of stitching and then after supper went back down, put some fabric on, reloaded everything, fiddled with the bobbin case spring and "sha-zam", I had found the problem.
Then onto problem number 2. I knew when I laid this quilt on the deck it would never be flat. I have no idea why. I think if I ever make this design again, I will measure each and every row and trim to size. For some reason, the rows weren't even although they pinned together beautifully. I have no explanation.
After two hours at the long arm, the quilt was finished. Three nights and an hour one afternoon and the binding was all stitched down. I do love the design and I'm so glad I bought a grey to go with this instead of white. I love the new Canvas line by Northcott. Next time you are in a quilt shop ask if they carry it.
So here you go.........Rainy day.....a grey day.....splash.....
