But I'm plugging away at the QAYG quilts:
hand stitching on the dark side of where the blocks meet. I went with a real dark backing fabric, so I'm hoping the navy( my JoAnne's has just white, navy, red to choose from) Perle cotton doesn't clash too much with the front. I have machine stitched in the ditch around each block, now just need to add a bit more stitching to keep everything together nicely.
and...I also seem to be ruining some nice fabric...I *thought* I was prewashing my Gee's Bend grape, but after 2 cycles in the machine and still bleeding like crazy, I thought I would soak the fabric a bit...and I am pretty sure I've taken about 8 shades of grape from my fabric so that now it looks like i have a dingy batik.
