WIP Wednesday: Block(ing) Party

Quilt show turn in for the East Cobb guild show is Saturday, so I had to get my butt in gear and block the Lone(ly) Rainbow quilt so it would hang nice and flat. As a result, we’re having “dinner and movie night” since the dining table is otherwise occupied.

I’ve also been working on my Harry Potter blocks, still finishing up last week’s and doing today’s as well.  Since I have neither laundry to fold nor papers for work to write tonight, I think I can wrap those up this evening.

  1. That is one beautiful quilt! How about sharing your blocking technique with us? Other than spraying with water, and either ironing or manually stretching my quilt (while praying to the lying-flat-straight-edges-gods), I have never properly blocked a quilt.

  2. A beautiful quilt! I really, really like how you quilted it. I am with ZAny Mouse on hoping you share your blocking technique. I am at a loss on how you safely do that on your dining room table.

  3. Happy to see this one ready for the show. Great color choices and quilting. What movie did you choose?

  4. I wanna hear the blocking technique too. I block my quilts for shows etc, but love to hear how other people do it – I might pick up a brilliant tip.
    I put down a towel on my carpet, spritz the back and front of my quilt with water, let it sit for a little while to soak in as much as it’s going to. Then I firmly pin (straight pins, into the carpet) out my quilt flat and square, then use a pressing cloth and steam iron it until it’s pretty dry feeling. I leave it for another few hours to make sure the back is all dry too and then pull out the pins and it’s all done.
