Anyway, I needed a break from administrative tasks, and decided to reignite my love for grandbaby’s family portrait/christening quilt. The christening had to be postponed a couple of times as life just kept on happening, but now there’s a new christening date scheduled and I need to finish that quilt already. You can read about the progress here.
(latest addition to the family of self portraits)
Some of you may recall that I had printed out all the collected self portraits and stitched them onto felt just to discover that they were too big (this post). I resized all the pictures in Excel and there’s where I left it off almost a year ago. I still do lots of work in Excel as I kind of grew up with spreadsheets, work wise.
I have tried a few different brands of printable fabric sheets, and EQ’s have been one of my favorites. However, I have not been too pleased with how it handles fusible, so I’ve tried a different brand today. I’m not too happy with this brand either as pieces of the backing paper got stuck when I tried to remove it.
Anyway, I now have a whole extended family of fusible backed portraits ready for International Quilting Day tomorrow.
I’ll be so relieved when this quilt gets finished! Will you too be quilting tomorrow? Is that a silly question??
Off to drop off the smelly TV; thanks for stopping by!
