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 !
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
