Project 25: Next stepJuly 8, 2011
I accomplished everything I intended to do yesterday. I picked up some cotton batting from the quilt store and cut out and attached the border to my quilt top. Now it is officially done and awaiting the next step: quilting.
This part is making me a little nervous. From reading about it I think I need two more supplies: extra bobbins and a package of safety pins. I also need to make a practice sandwich, as the three layers are called, so I can get my technique down before ruining my whole quilt.
It seems that the most common quilting technique people are using these days is called stippling. To see what I mean check out this video.
She makes it look so easy!
I don’t anticipate having another block of time until Sunday, so it is probably time that I reclaim my dining table and put sewing central away. I’ll update again when I have made some progress.
