Almost a Flimsy
I have been working on my blue Seven Sisters quilt top and I just have one more border to add and then it will be a finished flimsy. I think the floral fabric I am using for the borders gives this quilt a real old-fashioned look and I think I like that. I bought the border fabric so long ago that I can't really remember when. There was no print on the selvages at all so there was no hint at a date or fabric manufacturer.
My plan for today is to finish sewing the last border on and then to prep and sew the backing together. I am going to try to baste this on my long arm but I am not too sure how that will work out. Any tips for basting using an older model Millie would be very much appreciated.
I am linking up at Kathy's Quilts - Slow Sunday Stitching. Pop on over to get some inspiration from other slow stitchers.
By the way - Molly decided she needed to hold down the corner of the quilt so that it wouldn't get away and she wants to know - Is my butt too big?
