Texture -

Was all I was going for when I quilted - 
My Antique Squirrel - BIG BROTHER version
I'm still learning how to control my new machine - 
And my quilting is not that great yet - 
But I think I nailed the "texture" part - LOL - 

It should look awesome when it's washed -

Today I got it trimmed - 

Then I cut the strips for the binding - 
The BROWN was cut from the backing trimmings - 
 And will be the main color - 
The TURQUOISE was cut from the same yardage as the "squares on point" - 
And will be the flange color - 

I'll set all of this aside tomorrow - 
Because I want to prepare another backing - 
In case my "zipper" one doesn't work - 
I plan to baste the other halves of the zippers to the leader cloths -
While the guy is dismantling the old frame and building the new one - 

But that might not be possible - 
So I should probably have another backing ready to pin -
And another piece of batting - and another quilt top ready to go - 
Just in case - 
I like to have "options" - LOL - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Trimming -

My Antique Squirrel - BIG BROTHER version
Was on the agenda for today -
But I haven't even started - 
And this sucker is HUGE - 

I spent too much time on the computer today - 

So maybe I'll make some progress tomorrow - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
