Book Club


The first middle block of book club is quilted. It has been a while since I have quilted so the stitches are pretty big. I had not pinned the quilt...hey, it was 35x35 that's small enough right? Well, that was a mistake so about halfway through this block I popped it on the floor last night. Grabbed the purple bucket of open pins and after smoothing it out 3 times (the cats decided to play with a ball and kept rolling it over the quilt and chasing it!), I added a few pins around the blocks, then folded the excess backing fabric up and over to the front edge of the sashing. Much better now. I'm not sure if I'll quilt all the blocks and then do the sashing? We will see where the hoop moves to tonight.

That's so pretty! Glad you hadn't gone very far before you decided to get some pins in. That should be helpful!
