I made this quilt top in the late 1990s. I honestly had forgotten all about it. It was one of the first quilts I made and that was really obvious when I pulled it out of storage. The seams were really wavy and some had holes where I hadn't lined up the points properly. Plus, the blue fabric is denim and the white borders are really cheap muslin. I fixed all the holey seams but there wasn't much I could do about the wavy piecing unless I redid the entire thing. No thanks! My son took a liking to this top, so he helped me pick out backing fabric. For this one, we used an inexpensive print from JoAnn. I used the leftover backing for binding. I machine stitched the binding, which is something I don't usually do since I love hand-sewing binding. I used a polyester batting that I've had in my stash forever. You can see the fold lines in the quilt already with this batting. Good enough for this project though! The thread I used is So Fine 50 wt. by Superior Threads. Lovely thread!
My second longarm project is one I'm really excited about! This is a quilt using Bonnie & Camille's Bliss fabric line from around 2010. It was their third line for Moda. I was really thrilled when I found not only the top, but also matching backing and binding in my stash! I used a cotton batting by Pellon for this one and stuck with the So Fine 50 wt. by Superior Threads, just in off white instead of the white I used for the first quilt. I highly recommend Superior Threads! Great thread, great customer service. Anyway, I'm hand stitching the binding on this one, so I'm not quite done yet. This is a selfish sewing project--it's for me!!
