|Sunset at Mohave Point 56 x 40 inches|
This is going to be a short blog - I'm just showing you the finished quilt. Yesterday I cleaned my sewing room and took some pictures for the show circuit. Today I'm off to visit family and then next week I hope to start on another landscape... just don't quite know what I want to do!
|Squaring it up|
In my last blog, this quilt was being blocked. I had steamed the heck out of it and it was 'setting/drying'. The next step is to square up the corners and make the sides even, etc. To do it, I just dragged my cutting mat under the quilt and used my husbands T Square. (It's mine now... I doubt he misses it, lol.)
|Making the sides even|
So for some dumb reason when I blocked my quilt, one side was 1/2 inch shorter than the other. Time to stretch out that short side! I pinned both sides together and then pinned them to the floor again and steamed it. After setting/drying over night, both sides are the same height. (40 inches.)
And here it is. I think I better do something a little easier for my next project since I'm not feeling the need for such intense work.
Happy Quilting everyone and I hope you like my landscape!
