Due to the size of this quilt, I had to bite the bullet and buy backing fabric. Four yards of this pretty plaid,
Now I'm stuck doing a section at a time, which requires starting and stopping. And lots more time!
But there is some good to come out of this! I jerry-rigged my laser pointer to the front of the machine
(haven't bought the front mount yet) so that I can follow the pattern from the front. This is a technique I've always wanted to try, and so far, so good. I just have to be very aware of where the pattern is to be placed. But the quilting part, easy!
One pass is done, and hopefully I'll get more done tomorrow. Sunday for sure--hubby won't be home!
And in case your wondering about the Sharpie marker and paint ordeal, I'm happy to report that it's all better now. In desperation, I painted black over the Sharpie marks, then came back with primer.
Added another coat of primer to the entire wall, and thankfully, all gone. Now the room has blank walls ready quilts!
Have a wonderful weekend quilting!
