Friends day..........

I'm at the slow part of the colorwash quilt.  I got out my teeny tiny scissors to go with me to the living room to work on this.  They are usually in a little travel sewing kit that I have.



While my 2 friends were here yesterday I worked on a backing made with the leftover strips from 4 previous backs of quilts.  Sorry for the crooked photo........

I loaded the backing on the longarm and cut the batting and loaded it too.






It will be the back for my batik orphan block quilt that I made back in 2016.  It will get a simple meander plus hearts quilting pattern so it should quilt up fast.  I think medium gray or beige So Fine thread should be good for it.

A simple meander plus HEARTS, now that's a quilting pattern I'm anxious to see. I'm sure it's going to work perfect on your quilt.

I bet you're all finished with both the binding on your Colorwash and have your quilt all quilted by now. (^._.^).
