YEAY! My Tumbling Rubies Quilt is finally starting to look (and feel) like a real quilt!
Last night I hunkered down and set about to start the tedious task of completing the quilt sandwich; so with my iTunes going, a full glass of coke and a bowl of chips nearby I got to work taping, smoothing, and pinning.....and pinning....and pinning.....!
I've got the top pinned, cut to size and ready to be machine quilted. As much as I would LOVE to do some free motion quilting I think I'll keep it simple and let the fabric and the tumblers be the stars of this quilt.
I think that it will be a great lap size quilt - about 32 inches by 45 inches when the binding is done. Perfect for snuggling under while watching TV or reading a good book or during a little cuddle time with the kids!
Hopefully the kids will cooperate at bedtime over the next little bit and I can move this quilt from the WIP pile to the FINISHED list!!
That is so beautiful! The sandwich part is my LEAST favorite.. I just can't ever seem to get it tight/smooth enough.ReplyDelete
