I know that the quilt will be going in the washing machine and dryer so I'm going to wash a chunk of this fabric in hot water and then throw it in the dryer to see how it fares. If there is any shrinkage the backing will have to be washed and pressed before I use it. I sure hope not as it has nice body and I would hate to loose that in the wash. I got the fabric on the clearance shelf at Fabricland for $3/metre! What a great deal it was!
When making Lazy Punk there was a slight miscalculation! I had it in my mind that I needed 42 blocks but in fact I needed 41 so there was one leftover. Look at this poor lonely block! I hate to just toss in in the orphan block pile but what's a quilter to do? I am seriously considering making another 40 blocks to keep this one company. All those in favour raise your hands! Honestly, the cutting and glue basting was so quick and painless and the hand appliquéing is a great project for when I am out and about.
The weather has cooled off and the orange salvia like me is very happy about this change!
Until I post again, happy sewing!
