.....I am so bad about posting here !
I finished the new quilt top on Wednesday, I think. It's really big for a couch quilt, but that seems to be the way I make them lately. I guess it comes from my napping on the couch......I'm pretty tall, and I hate it when a nap quilt won't cover my feet while letting me snuggle it against my cheek. So I try to keep THAT in mind when I make them for other people.
Anyway, the big piece of fabric from last weekend's "score" worked out perfectly for the border.
I call this one, "Marking Time", and it measures around 60 by 80 inches. I haven't chosen backing fabric yet, as I expect that I won't get a chance to baste it until the weather opens up again in the Spring and I can do it outside.
But I went back to the second-hand store this weekend and made my second score ! I had messaged the lady who runs the store, and asked her to look and see if she could locate a copy of Electric Quilt among the sewing supplies she had. While I was perusing the aisles this Friday, I looked over, and there sat EQ4 on a shelf that I had already passed once.
I asked her if she had put it out for me, and she said that, no, she hadn't had any luck finding what I wanted. Well, I don't believe in luck.......I KNOW that God blessed me by putting that right there where I HAD to see it myself ! She let me have it for $4.00, and I loaded it onto my computer when I got home. I know it's not the latest version, but IT IS the version that I had before, so I am perfectly comfortable in knowing how to use it ! SCORE again, praise the LORD !
