Prepping for Quilting

22 07 2012

I took some time off second job today, and visited second job’s main location, just so that I could pin Fun with Free Piecing. My knees won’t allow me to crawl around on a floor, even if I had enough floor space. At second job, I can push three of the gaming tables together and go to town! I’m on a roll with this quit, and determined to keep going while I have my momentum.

FwFP Backing, Stretched

I love the colors in this backing more and more! I tried painter’s tape for the first time today – last time I did this, it was normal packing tape. I like the strength of the packing tape, but the lack of crazy sticking with the painter’s tape was awesome.

All Set to Pin
In layering this together, I discovered that my back is pretty much exactly two inches bigger on all sides than the top, which is perfect. Pretty good for not having a formal  plan for the backing and doing all the adding in my head.

PwFP Pinned

I’m a little concerned about how the quilting will look on the back, but have determined that everything in the bobbins will be gray or black. All of the colors will be on the front of the quilt.

I’m at home now, and even though it’s getting on toward midnight, I’ve started drawing my quilting lines. I’m going to start tonight, and see how I like my quilting plan.
