Starting a Donation Quilt for SAQA
After that is done, I choose a fabric for the back of the quilt. Next I cut out a piece of thin batting, and put the two pieces together and place this under the cellophane that has my design drawn on it. I put a couple of pieces of tape on top so I am able to lift the cellophane up and down as I work. Once this I start placing my fabric pattern pieces on top of the batting. As you can see in the photo I have made notes for myself on the side of the quilt. I do this to remind myself what I want to do while making the quilt.I also put down what colors I want to use and which embroidery stitches I want to use etc.
I will spend most of the day today placing my fabric pattern pieces on the batting. Once this is done I will start pinning everything in place.
