I finished Dad’s top.
It’s about 88″ x 104″, which makes it too big to use a flannel sheet for the backing. The place I had bookmarked to get the flannel when I was ready was PM Quilting but when I finally figured out where I had wanted to order the fabric, this is what’s on the website: Pamela Darwin passed away on Friday, October 3, 2008. They still have fabric listed and it’s marked down but they don’t respond to my emails so I guess I’m going to use regular cotton backing. Maybe I can attach velcro to the top and then attach velcro to dad and then his quilt won’t fall off during the night.
I pieced the backing for Keaton’s quilt and have it loaded on the longarm to quilt . . maybe tomorrow. I had planned to quilt on it tonight but Chad came home from work and went to bed and the longarm running would wake him up. He probably needs the sleep.
Several times Vicky has sent me fabrics she no longer wants with the understanding that I’ll use it on donation quilts. Remember the green & pink quilt I cut out to take with me to Arkansas? I only managed to get two blocks done on it while I was in Arkansas but look how perfect this piece of fabric will be for the backing?
The backing is one Vicky sent. Perfect! I’m going to keep sewing on the block tonight. I have 8 made and I need 35. Wonder how many I can get done tonight??
