It took a while to decide the color for sashing. After shopping around several local fabric stores I finally picked this mocha brown. But I wasn't really sure this color was appropriate and I am still not sure about it.
I found that somehow I like basting with these quilting cloth pins (I actually don't know their official name). Well, I would probably change my mind when I make something big like for our king size bed someday (I don't think it would happen for years though).
I taped the backing fabric on the linoleum floor in my work room for making a sandwich. We are not crazy about linoleum, but sometimes it is nice that you have one not so beautiful flooring which you don't have to worry about scratches of your pins.
my first one. I think I got a little better doing this. Once I got used to it, it is so fun and I couldn't leave my machine for hours. Well, actually it took only a couple hours to finish quilting this small piece. There is no wonder but it is amazingly quick compared with hand quilting! I love it.
I used dusty green and polka dot print for binding. I think I should have picked brighter contrasted colors. There is so much I need to learn about designing quilts. And I love to learn new things which I love to make.
Wishing you all have a good week!
