It’s April 6th…we still have an abundance of snow! Guess what…we are again under another snowfall warning!
This is my morning view from the picture window…
Thankfully, it’s a day that I am able to stay home and I plan to do just that.
April has been a busy month so far, as was March. My Longarm and I have been busy!
I am slipping in a little baby quilt making daily now as the date of arrival is quickly approaching!
So the other night I hoped to finish piecing the backing. I was tired and didn’t notice that the print was off grain until I had sewn it and laid it out on the floor!
Can you see it? It was late at night, so I decided just to sleep on it.
The next morning I took it apart and using once upon a day home ec lessons straightened the grain. The print is so adorable…it’s a Cotton + Steel called Flower Market and I was determined to use it.
It was worth the extra time it took to match up the design while piecing this backing.
The quilt is loaded on the Longarm, I am hoping to use this snow day to finish it!
One tip for others who longarm. I keep a few pieces of trimmed wide backings from personal quilts and baste them to the top of backings that might be short as a leader preventing unpleasant surprises at the end of the quilt!
