Here I've nearly finished mounting the backing.
|Happily, my friend Anna agreed that the "tsunami swirls" print would be good for the backing.|
|Notice how close the batting is to the backing.|
|That's CLOSE! I was going to have to move the side clamps around|
when I got to the edges.
And that's not the worst of it - look at the marks it left!
|You know I was just about sick when I saw this.|
I left the quilt on the frame that week when the bobbin winder was being repaired. I hoped to be able to position the groovy boards exactly where they had been, but frankly found it impossible.
|Yup - it's always going to show.|
|It's still gorgeous - and if you don't look too closely, you don't see the marks.|
|The colours really are stunning.|
