Ocean Waves is Quilted April 8, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Saturday was the day to quilt Ocean Waves. Would you believe its quilted SIX weeks before I need it? Of course, it still needs binding, a label, pillowcase and washing.
While DH was making a new network connector for my computer after my 4 or 5, maybe six failed attempts, I trimmed the quilt. This picture is before I trimmed and that’s all the backing and batting I had when I got the bottom of the quilt. Note to self — buy 1/4 yard more that I think I need when buying wide backing and cut the batting 5 inches longer.
Once it was trimmed, I started thinking about the pillowcase. Ignore the quilting — there won’t be any on the pillowcase — but what do you think about this idea?
The pink was used as the backing and will be the same width on both sides of the pinwheels — I think I’m leaning toward the narrow width.
