I can safely say that I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel with this project. My goal is to finish it up this weekend… which is a lofty goal, I admit, but one I am going to strive for anyway. Here’s where I stand so far:
The front is complete!
I have it laying over my guest bed, so that’s the red you see peeking out from under it. I like the length that it hangs down the sides of the bed, just a bit longer than a comforter. I went to the store yesterday and purchased some low loft batting (on sale for 40% off!) and the fabric for the backing (on SALE for $1.99/yd!). I’m not ashamed to say that I am always on the lookout for a great deal.
That brings me to a few mentionable notes:
~ Keep tabs on your quilt measurements when you go to purchase the batting. I bought pre-cut batting in a bag, but opted for the king size, even though this is a queen size quilt, because the queen size pre-cut was just a few inches short.
~ If you are going to use denim in your project, like I did, know that you are going to wind up with a heavy quilt, which will make maneuvering and getting it through a sewing machine a little more difficult.
And for today’s question: How am I going to go about finishing this quilt since I don’t have a large enough area of empty floor space on which to lay it out flat? Suggestions would be helpful.
