She and I talked about the difficulties that I was having with the quilting part of my quilt restoration. The backing fabric was wrinkling and looking rather terrible to me, even though I was using an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric in place.
Patti, suggested that I get some quilt clips to help hold the fabric as it is rolled up, and that I do a lot of hand basting to hold the different layers in place while I do the actual quilting. So, I did look on the internet and order some quilt clips. They arrived in the mail today!
I think I am a bit confused about the basting and how big the stitches need to be, but I am going to baste and then see if it is a good size or if I have to try again!
I needed to move my cat away from the center of my bed, so that I can spread the quilt layers out and smooth them out for the basting. After I smoothed them, the cat got in the center again!
If you've ever had a cat decide that they want to be in the center of a project, you know that they can seem to weigh a ton when one tries to make them move! They seem to have a mental ability to increase the pull of gravity!
My beautiful Chica is now the main quilting buddy!
