this post -- there are 9.5 yards (I miscounted originally) -- and I hope to make two lap sized quilts with different patterns. Interestingly, this is a fabric line that reads as solids but is a directional print! That means I would be itchy if I tried to do triangles. Would have made me nuts to have lines going different directions -- I had enough problem keeping the directions straight with squares.
I also finished two charity quilts and they are quilted, bound and ready to be delivered next week. That is always a relief as I try to make two each month (other than a one month sabbatical in August). I did free motion stippling on these which makes me tense beyond words. I kept having a bit of drag on my lucite/plastic quilting table that fits my machine. I was hesitant to wax or polish it -- any advice from anyone out there on what to put on there to give me as much 'glide' as possible? I'm happy the backs (flannel) don't show the herky-jerky stitching in a few places. I know these are the perfect size to practice on in order to improve my free motion quilting. You can only do so much on a practice sandwich.
