Yesterday was a day of chores (just the usual - post office, bank, groceries). I no sooner decided that I deserved to treat myself than I found myself at my local fabric store.
Backing and binding fabric have been chosen, all Anna Maria Horner Little Folks. A whole quilt made from voile fabrics! Supersoft. I am all set to go now.
Today I have basted the quilt, and I can't wait to start quilting. Hopefully the voile fabrics will cooperate nicely with my sewing machine. As a little side note - masking tape and voile fabrics don't mix well. I used tape upon tape to keep the backing fabric firmly tacked to the floor. Mind you not all masking tapes are created equal either, some are just more sticky than others, even if they all say "High Tack".
