I still have not completed my first quilt, as I told you my pea brain did not realize I would have to piece the backing of it because I thought I had enough fabric. I WAS WRONG! So I went out to get some more fabric the other day and guess what?!?!? THEY WERE OUT! I searched and searched every single bolt of fabric in the whole store and nope none! As I was about to give up (w/ my heart broken mind you) I happened to see the Remenant stash. Yes, there was a note on top saying "Not for sale needs to be priced" But did that stop me? NOPE! I search through that basket and guess what I found?
Now that I don't have all of what I need to do my original plan for the backing, NEW PLANS ARE IN ORDER! Which, thanks to my hubby, I (we) figured something else out! So that is my plan for my night, working on piecing the back!
Also, I wanted to show you guys something. But before I do, let me tell you a little bit about it.
I have NEVER and I mean NEVER quilted ANYTHING! So, everything I have been working on has been for someone, I haven't just sat down and "played" with any of my fabric or my sewing machine. So I decided it was time to play. And, this is what I came up with.
But, I think for my first attempt ever at quilting, I didn't do too shabby.
I do need to figure out how to baste better though, my backing is all puckered and doesn't look that great.
It's all folded over on itself and just doesn't look that great. But I'm still proud of it!
OH OH OH OH!!! I made something else too!!!!! MY OWN PRESSING BOARD! I'm sure a few of you who were really paying attention to details in my pics have noticed I was pressing on a towel. Well, it's not a towel anymore!
and here is what the back looks like
Not too shabby huh? I'm proud of myself! Oh, and as I edited my giveaway post, it will end on Sat 4/20 at midnight! If you haven't entered it yet go here and enter it!!!!
I'm linking up w/ Freshly Pieced!
Can anyone please tell me how to baste my quilts better? PLEASE?!?!?
