The darker "stained glass" print runs up either side of the daisy stripe. When I trim everything down to size it will be a daisy stipe back with a border of the stained glass print.
Next I smoothed the batting on top. Whew, it's getting warm in here!
Unfolded the quilt top and lined up the top edge with the upper edges of the backing and batting. Pulled the sides into place, then pulled out the bottom edge of the quilt.
Wait a minute.
The bottom of the quilt is hanging over the lower edge of the backing/batting by a good three inches! What???
I sat down on the couch to consider the problem. I was sure I'd measured everything correctly.
Let's see, how many 12" blocks are there?
7 x 12 = 84. But I thought I needed the 6" Bow Tie blocks in order to get to 84" in length! That's why I put them on there! sheesh
The Bow Tie blocks are coming off. Then we'll try this pin basting process again.
