If you read this blog for any length of time you will quickly learn that I'm not fond of pink. It's really the only color that I just don't like.
Last year when Laura was here she worked on a quilt. She finished the top and took it home to England with her. Where she never touched it again, just like a real quilter.
She brought it back with her thinking that she needed to finish the top. She didn't. It's done! So we decided that she would finish it while she was here and that meant dyeing a quilt back first.
The batik fabric is her binding and the accent color on the front of the quilt and, if I do say so myself, I matched it perfectly.
While she was away last week I got the quilt loaded and basted and it's ready for her to start quilting.
I picked these threads for her to choose from and I hope to get her started quilting this afternoon....after I watch the Virginia Tech game.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
