I was home in Colorado this past weekend. One of the things I did there was work on my Project Linus quilt.
I found some perfect fabric for the backing at Joann's. This first photo is the backing, the batting (donated by my mom), and the top, all ready to be sandwiched together.
Mom's cousin Cass and a group of ladies quilt for Our Lady of the Meadows. The church gives quilts to those in need. Cass lent us the frame they use to stretch the quilts. Here is the quilt stretched and ready to be quilted.
Lucky for me, my mom knows how to do all this stuff! She taught me how to tie the quilt.
Here's a closeup.
And this is Mom in action.
Here's an artsy in-progress photo.
The last thing I did was learn how to make binding, attach it to the quilt by machine, and hand-sew the rest of it down. I got about one-quarter of the way done with the by-hand part.
I intend to finish the quilt over Christmas. Stay tuned for that!
