It's Getting Old
Like in so many places, the weather is the same - SNOW and more SNOW. So working on my Something Old seemed appropriate during this 'getting old' weather pattern. I had planned to hand quilt this - that didn't work as I used a felt weight batt and a little heavier backing. I like this mix for wallhangings so they lay nice and flat against the wall. And then I tried to machine quilt the baptist fan and that was a flop. So back to my faithful old New Home and walking foot.
And the little kitty is getting there. "Hang in There" is what I keep telling myself - this snow has to stop some time!
I was going to save this project for next week, but I am so bored. My fussy cut little 'Paper Dolls' got framed over the weekend with those HSTs I played with and some scraps for corner stone color. I needed to brighted up the day, so today I framed them with some fun polka dots, strips, plaids and solids.
Is this how you all feel? Well Snoodles over at Lily Pad Quilting has the perfect solution. Go find out..................
