Can't Screw It Up Baby Quilt Part 2
Long story short, it was late Tuesday afternoon before I came up for air and got out to the studio.
The good news is that I quickly found some fabric I liked for the backing. Looks like cascading water, to me.
Or wet the bed, dunno.
To make life easier, I use zippers on the quilts.
But for this one, since I knew it was square and because it is so small (and it is mine so if I screw it up, I haven't harmed anyone), I believe I can just use about two inches along the top and that gives me 3.0 inches along the bottom. I wouldn't do this for someone who hired me - too risky. And I sure wouldn't risk it on a quilt that was much larger. I'm not crazy or masochistic, either.
I currently have three types of batting out in the studio - a light polyester, an 80% cotton and the tail end of some warm and natural I bought years ago. I ended up going with the warm and natural because I personally like the feel - and I was using up the roll.
Wednesday and today have been too hectic to get back out to the studio for any length of time, and tomorrow is the same. Hopefully, I will be able to get this quilted sometime early next week.
