Quilt top is finished

Good morning! I got The Call from Joann's yesterday afternoon...my batting is in so I'm going to pick it up soon. Good timing, since I finished the quilt top. I took these pictures yesterday afternoon...sorry for the glare, I couldn't escape it.

This picture (above) represents the colors the most accurately.

This is a big one (for me)! But luckily I only have to have one long seam in the backing so that was easy to put together. At Sarah's advice, I bought quilt basting spray, but I couldn't find the one that she recommended. I'll check at Joann's to see if they have 505, if not, I'll make sure to spray the one I got outside. At any rate, it'll be nice to not have to deal with safety pins while quilting.

I also have to pick up some fiberfill, thread, and a few other sewing notions. Food shopping too...it's Taco Tuesday, don't you know!

Have a great day!

  1. Jen, I love your quilt top! The 505 basting spray is great. I like using it although I have only used it for small projects.
    I love your new background with the bees! Amber loved bees and has many bee pillows and items in her room.

  2. It looks GREAT!! You got that done quick! I worked some on Amelia's quilt last night. Two more rows have sashing. Only 5 more to go! I hope to have a few more done tonight.

  3. what a pretty quilt==good for you!!!
    Do be careful with the sprays and not breathe while you are using them!!!! Or use a small mask--they may make quilting easier---but they are not good for the lungs!!!!
    sorry to be a party booper!!!! But I worry about you--friend!!!
    Hugs, Di
    PS--Love this background--it woke me up--and I needed that----thanks--Di
