|Quilting Tabby Mountain Is the Goal!|
- I need to design and embroider a quilt label and decide whether it goes on the front of the quilt or on the back.
- I need to dig around in my studio to see if I have a package of batting the right size for Tabby Mountain. If not, I need to purchase batting.
- Then I need to get all the dog fur and stray threads off my quilt top and give it a final pressing.
- Next, my extra-wide backing fabric needs to be cut to size, pressed and squared
- Then I can load Tabby Mountain on my quilting frame!
- It would be nice if I could baste my horizontal seam lines and outer edges of the quilt before the end of the week...
- -- Oh, one more thing: Now that Tabby Mountain is out from under my Bernina, I'd like to finish that pineapple log cabin quilt block this week.
|Dulce Pom Trim from Samuel and Sons Passementerie|
Wouldn't that be delicious? The color is Blueberry, a deep, dark blue, and the 1" poms are unbelievably soft because they are made of wool, not that polyester stuff you find in craft stores. It's from Samuel & Sons Passementerie, one of my favorite high-end interior design resources... But alas, it retails for $120 per yard and I would need EIGHT yards to go around the edges of this quilt. So, NO. Also it is labeled Dry Clean Only, and who wants a quilt that needs to be dry cleaned?! If I could find a reasonably priced alternative with faux fur, Minky type pom poms in the right color, that would be ideal. If anyone knows of a resource, please let me know in the comments!
