Last night I participated in Friday Night With Friends again. It was nice to spend a night playing with my quilt projects.
I actually spent most of yesterday finishing the backing for my purple Log Cabin quilt. I was surprised at how many of these fabrics I still had in my stash after 20 years. I did have to add in a couple fabrics that weren't on the front. And I used muslin on the top and bottom because I knew quite a bit of it would be trimmed off when I finish the quilt.
By the evening, I was ready to put it all on my long arm. That was a bit of a production. Ideally, I would have liked to get the backing perfectly centered both side-to-side and from top to bottom. I did pretty well from side-to-side, but not as well from top to bottom. It started about an inch off and by the time I had quilted about half of it, it was off even more. Maybe someday I'll figure out how to align them more accurately.
I got it about halfway quilted before I decided I'd better go to bed at 12:30AM.
Thanks again Cheryl for another lovely Friday sewing night.
