Design Wall Monday, September 2
Anyway, that's all the quilting that's been going on around here lately! I don't know where August went, or summer for that matter. I spent a fair amount of time running around with friends and shopping at quilt stores, but not all that much time actually making anything. I'm well prepared for winter, though!
My big plan for September is to get Hocus Pocus Ville quilted. This has been pieced for a very long time. My big hangup on this one was my backing fabric. I had ordered some Ghastlies fabric for the back, which I thought would be perfect. It had a very white background, though, and my quilt is more tan, so I've been thinking about what to do about this - change out the backing (which I'd already bought) or dye it. Yesterday I decided to just take the plunge and dye it tan. I think it worked pretty well.
That's it - if I can get this done, and my other few Blocks of the Week done, I'll consider September a good month! I have one more running-around-shopping-at-quilt-stores excursion planned, and then I'm staying home to actually work on some of it!
