Another Quilt

I prepared another quilt for quilting - the Rob Peter to Pay Paul quilt top. I used spray baste for the first time. The backing is 'plush' - a knit backing similar to 'minky', and I was told that I needed to glue it so it wouldn't stretch. Hopefully it will be easy to quilt.

I had a few comments on the wool for my hat - it is Green Label from Tanis Fibre Arts, and the colour way is "Super Tartan",  one of the OOAK colours Tanis offers for sale a few times a year on Etsy. The yarn is lovely - I have used it a few times, and it is very good quality, plus this colour way is amazing, but all of her colours are wonderful.

The wind and snow has left beautiful snow drifts in the yard.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

That is a great looking quilt. The spray baste should work well with the backing.

Love the snow drifts!

As always, lovely quilt. I've always been fascinate by snow drifts. They are always so unique and pretty.
