Back Back...

It's getting there...

I bet you thought this was going to be easy.

Nope. Although I want the signature panel to be at the lower edge of the quilt, I don't want it to be under the barn block, so I had to do some calculations to work out where to place it on the back.  The hard part is done though. Tomorrow I'll just sew a WOF (width of fabric) piece to either side of this center panel and I will be finished.

I'll be able to show the quilt to my students on Saturday and then I'll bring it to the longarm quilter on Sunday. I am hoping to have it back to show the Barn Building class at QT on the 28th (also full.) Then I'll add the binding (still to be determined), take beauty shots (because my brother sure won't), show it off to my family on Thanksgiving and then mail it to Colorado.

Time to start thinking of the next quilt!

I like what you did for the back, you've really got your schedule organized. Interesting cutter, where did you get it?

I love how you’ve done your label. I’m wondering if the blue thing is a ruler or cutter and wonder where you purchased it as well?

I love that you have shown the process of making this quilt. It is a stunner. I have 2 questions though. I also would like to know where you got that straight edge that is in the picture. Secondly are you going to give your brother a printed copy of all of your inspirations for the birds and the barn? I think it is such a fascinating story. Thanks for sharing.

The back is great and you sure have a knack for getting things nice and straight...good tip there with the straight edge. I love the "Time to start thinking of the next quilt!". Almost like "Time to find another house to flip!" Wished I lived nearer to take your class.
