Geez, I almost ditched the post today. Yes, on day 5 of a 30 day posting commitment. Pathetic. What to write about then?
I know, my daughter mentioned to me that Vladimir Putin was chosen again (two years running!) as the most powerful person in the world by Forbes magazine. Perfect. I'll just post a pic of Vlad and call it quits.
I bought some painter's tape after taking Jacquie's Creative Quilting With Your Walking Foot class on Craftsy last month. I just knew I wanted to put those lessons to good use. At this point I decided (along with Jacquie's input) to start out quilting straight lines on the blocks keeping with the diagonal. I have the blue painters' tape in addition, but neither the green nor the blue are really sticking that great. I don't know if starch or sizing is interfering but what a pain!
I tried doing this but that doubled the time it took. I love the backing. I had planned on using it for another top but I liked it with this one. It's all personal ads written by women. It was intended for the back of a wedding quilt I made but ended up not giving as a gift.
I wonder if Vladimir quilts?
