|Quilt top in daylight
I have done no sewing. Instead I bought and assembled a bunch of new furniture: a couch and two bookcases. Last year I got a new apartment, now I finally I have furnishings that work in it :)
I did buy backing fabric for the quilt since my intended backing fabric was too narrow. It's cobalt blue cotton, yum! I need to wash and dry the fabric, then layer and pin baste the quilt, then quilt it. Because I decided on poly batting, which isn't opaque, I am lining the quilt top with muslin. Otherwise the white squares will look slightly blue. So the whole project is much more complicated than originally intended.
