Yesterday I put this backing on the quilt. Amazingly, I had enough cotton batting to fit it. You can see the very minimalist quilting I've done - just diagonals one way, and with wavy lines down the borders. It's reminded me of how much I hate making big quilts like this, and all the problems that come with doing a quick job - seams not matching perfectly, slippage during quilting, fabric puckers.....it's pretty rough and ready, but it'll do the job.
Yesterday was like this - sleety showers. The dogs elected to stay beside the fire.
I've been sewing this quilt downstairs as it's more pleasant. the table I'm using is just to the left of this photo.
The binding is on, so now I have to hand sew the other side of it. Then I'll package it up along with an unneeded duvet and cover (the refugees are feeling the cold) and my old DVD player, and send it to my daughter for her to take to them.
