Yesterday I got all of my Paula Nadelstern fabric washed and ironed. I shouldn't say "washed" because I actually soaked it for 24 hours changing the water once. Yes, it did bleed. I also soaked some batiks that I bought for a later project and it bled too. Now I can use all of the fabrics knowing that they won't cause any trouble later. After I finish dyeing fabric today I'll get into EQ and finalize my plans for the sample quilts.
I also had a few minutes to add another border to the 4th of July quilt.
This is a cute little baby quilt that Mom made and I had to get it quilted yesterday too. We had quilt club last night and I wanted to get it to her. The colors in this photo are WAY off and I know that because she used my Color Wheel Stash Packs. She used a pack each of Light, Medium and Dark.
I took the photos really quick last night before I left for the meeting and didn't do the white balance setting on the camera but this photo has the colors a little more accurate. I love this Happy Times panto for baby quilts.
Quilting with Minky for the backing was no problem at all and I think the new parents will love it!
Today I'm dyeing lots of fabric and will spend the evening relaxing with Electric Quilt doing some planning for my sample quilts. But maybe I can squeeze in one more border.
