Back with My Foot on the Pedal
The lame ankle wasn't so good for sewing on the machine (or cutting or ironing for that matter), but I finally got back to work on the white/red/pink liberated quilt this weekend. I decided to piece the back, using a technique that I found on another blog ages ago (I can't seem to find the link, can someone help me out?). I love the way it turned out, but even though it looks like I threw it together, piecing the back really meant putting in the time to make two fronts! I can definitely imagine making some more tops this way in the future. The scrap bins overfloweth. I've decided that pin-basting on the floor is my least favorite part of the whole quilt-making process, but at least it forced me to vacuum today. I'm about 1/3 of the way through the quilting, so hopefully there'll be some finished photos by the end of the week!
