Of course I took no photos while piecing. I was listening to a book on MP3 narrated by a friend called "The Postmistress" and I was VERY involved in the story. This is the way I love to sew, my machine and a recorded book!! I am even reminded of the book when I look at the quilt.
Here is the quilt on the design wall "suck" to the felt. I arranged the squares which proved to be very time consuming and each square was judged as to it's location. This was not my usual "fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants approach. I took a photo and printed it. Then I took the squares down in rows and marked them then pieced them referring to the photograph on every square making sure of the placement and orientation.
After the pieceing, it went back up on the wall and because of the wonkiness of some of the squares, I wanted to make sure it laid flat. I only had one small seam to re-do.
Next I laid it on my work table which is only 4 feet wide. Getting on my knees on the floor is out of the question. I sandwiched it up with white craft felt (72") which I buy by the bolt with a 50% off coupon from Joann. It holds it shape a bit better than batting which I hate to use. Then I backed it with 108" muslin - also an old bolt buy from Joann with the coupon.
As I sit here it is rolled and clipped and ready to go under the needle which won't be happening for a few days. I knew from the beginning how I wanted to quilt it so I sure hope I can pull it off! Stay tuned.
