Well, lots of movement this week as I prep for the Project that Ate My Life. I don’t expect it will be as all consuming as the Project of Doom, but still, there goes my early September!
I did manage to finish the top and get Hipster Kitten quilted. I can get the binding on tonight and wash it before donating tomorrow night. After that I need to work on the Cat Commission so I can mail it out along with the baby quilt I just finished.
Nina helpered with the quilting, as you can see. Quite the stinker, she is.
Also worth noting – I pieced together 9 fat quarters to make the back for this quilt, and I did not notice when I got the fabric, but that peach print in the center? Is peach scented. Nasty, fake peach scent.
It really blooms when you press it, too. Ugh. I never thought I’d have to say it, but smell your fabric before you buy, lest you end up with “press and sniff” fabric in your quilt. Imagine putting a whole bunch of fruit fabrics together in one quilt. I shudder to think of the results. Give me the scratch and sniff stickers any day (especially the grape, but never, ever the pizza).
