This isn't much to share today, but for my own records, I want to remember this project.
I ordered a 9-yard bolt of 80% cotton/20% polyester batting (with scrim) from Walmart.com, and I am supposed to be able to pick it up on Friday, September 9th. I have never used batting with scrim, but the reviews made it sound good, so at $29.00, I decided to give it a try.
So, wanting to be ready to baste something right away when it arrives, I started searching for something to use as a backing for the recently finished Fall quilt-top. Having little successs, I instead starting trying to clean up the mess of fabrics left on the cutting table from the top's piecing.
Then it occurred to me that I could PIECE a back FROM, rather than PUT UP, all this fabric. I mean, I piece backs all the time, but usually out of big lengths of fabric that are just not wide enough or long enough by themselves to do a ONE-piece big back.
But these are anywhere from one yard (rare), to 1/2 yard pieces, to PIECES, literally. But it's been interesting........maybe the MOST interesting fact has been that it's taking so much more thought and time than the original top did.
This is fun !
I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy; for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
"NOW THANKS BE UNTO GOD, WHICH ALWAYS CAUSETH US TO TRIUMPH IN CHRIST !"
The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear?The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh, my enemies and foes, they stumbled and fell. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear....Psalm 27 1-3
Psalm 31: 7, 8
And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; thou hast set my feet in a large room.
