|This blast from my past is almost older than dirt...|
I also found (HOOOOORAYYY!) the label for my Cloud 9 quilt. This was only the second quilt I quilted on my Avanté, and I didn't sew the label high enough up the backing. So when I got to the lower section of the quilt, I was pretty upset to see that the top ended half way into the label, meaning I'd be trimming it off. So I unpicked it (that was fun, sitting under the quilt back still loaded on the machine, arms in the air, reverse-sewing). I put it in a "safe place" so I'd stitch it back on once the quilt was done. Well, I misplaced it shortly thereafter, which was last April, and only, finally, found it again 2 days ago, through looking for my X-Acto knife and blades! Woo hoo! I sewed it back on this afternoon:
I plan to carefully go over the waves on my Bernina, so the quilting will go through the label, as always.
Finally, while looking for backing for my June Scrap-a-Palooza quilt, I found some more of the Simplicity fabric I had hoped to use entirely up by making this quilt...and the makeup bags...
Ah well, this will become the lining and some of the patches in the other two makeup bags I have started. Or maybe the binding on the scrap quilt. . . maybe both?! There is 2/3 yard! How I love Moda fabric.
