Good morning everyone ! This is going to be a very beautiful day because it's already 18°C (which is in the 60s for you guys in the US) and it's suppose to go as high as 30°C (which is approximately 85°F). Crazy !
Anyway, that's not the subject of my post. I finished my wonky star quilt last night. I was very happy because I was getting sick of making wonky stars. It was taking me about an hour and a half to make six :S It almost became a UFO.
It's really not my best picture. It's kind of grey outside since it's already hot ! I like warm (summer) days so much !
I would like to talk about backing. For this one, I used a pink/turquoise print I already had at home. It's cute but it doesn't match THAT much with the front. I wanted to know if your backing always matched the front of the quilt or if it doesn't matter to you... Because I feel like it needs to match but I've seen quilts where the backing had nothing to do with the front of the quilt !
When I pulled this out of the washing machine last night, I almost started to cry. See, I had a bobbin of blue thread (left from another project) and I wanted to use it so I pieced some stars with blue thread. I don't know what I was thinking... I was just too lazy to change it and I did not want to waste it I guess... But anyway, last night, I could see all the blue thread and I thought that it had bleed on the white fabric. It took me about 10 hours to piece the top (and it's a baby quilt!) and I was planning on selling it so this was the last thing I wanted. I dried it and it was better then but I still can see some blue thread and I don't know if I'm confortable selling it.. Maybe I could paint the thread ?
On another subject, have you ever checked out the search keywords people write to find your blog ? I do, sometimes and last night, I saw that : " sewing with love, laugh and live in it". lol It's funny isn't it ? It made me laugh so thank you to whoever wrote this :)
I don't know what to do today ! I think I'll start something new, again :) That's what you get when you finish the things you start !
Have a wonderful day dear readers !
