...and at last ready for quilting.
I (and thankfully for me, a couple of others) are playing chicken with the clock (thanks Rhonda) in Susan`s Modern Christmas Tablerunner Swap as the last day for posting our runner to our partner rapidly approaches. Now Susan must be extremely patient or trusting but she has been super good about those of us dragging our heels!
As with all students late with their homework I kind of have an excuse as I`ve been waiting on fabric - specifically white backing fabric. It was ordered ages ago and I can only think it has been caught up in the Eid postal backlog - along with some Lark fabric and fabric I ordered for The 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee.
Our mailman generally calls with packages around 2PM and as 2 o`clock came and went, I decided to see what I could find to use instead. Finding nothing suitable and or big enough I thought I would have one last look at the back at the cupboard and hey presto, there was some lovely white fabric. I confess that I scrunched it up and kissed it.
I pieced the Christmas trees, made a wonky star and added the scrappy border...
...then this morning, I made this big 16 inch star for the backing...
..it sits in the centre with white either side and this is where I`m at now.
Basted and ready for quilting. Now I just have to decide how I`m going to quilt it!
