The top’s done.
Here it is, with the yoyos pinned at the centre of each hourglass block. Maybe the yoyos make them look more like bowties…?
Next step is the backing, and then the quilt sandwich. I suppose I should start to think about how I’m going to quilt it, but I tend to think it’s going to be cross-hatching in a diamond pattern. Well, it’s kind of asking for it, really, don’t you think?
Before I go any further though, I have a big tidy-up to do. My cutting table is entirely covered with a litter of elastic, threads, scraps big and tiny, mask fabrics and half-finished projects. I need some space to work; this mess is demotivating and inhibiting.
So, piece a backing, cut batting, and out with the basting spray 🙂
