so I had to stop biking. Who knows if I have had my last ride of the season? S. and I went out on Friday after the roads dried from the overnight showers. Three miles from home (which means 18 minutes for us) it started to rain; a cold, sleety rain. Thank goodness we were close to home. The forecast looks good for my next day off. Who knows?
I put together a strip quilt last weekend. I had some 2.5 inch batik precut strips. I had sewn all the dark ones together on the serger, no less, for another project. I changed my mind and took the strips apart. Linda over at Art in Search blogged about this method for creating a quilt. I decided to try it out.
This morning I started quilting it. I decided that any quilting at all would detract from the beauty of the fabric so I went into the ditch. I am lousy at that. Even after 42 lines, I was still missing the ditch much of the time.
It passes the distance test. Don't get too close. I like the back, too. I had no tension issues. I had expected some, considering I was quilting batiks.
