To make these for my dark green October Tiny Rails block -
I decided this was the week to make some progress on another Rainbow Scrap Challenge project.
I finished my Rainbow Bowties quilt top in early August - 90 fun blocks made over several months of 2017 - 2018. Then, as is typical for me, it sat in the "to be quilted" pile until a couple days ago when I finally got it basted and ready to quilt!
I used the pool noodle method for basting again and it worked really well! I think the key is making sure you cut your backing and batting plenty big so there is lots of extra when you lay the quilt on top. (I admit to having skimped on those things on some past projects, and it results in lots of frustration and do-overs!)
I got started with the quilting, and then discovered some problems -
That thread color was all wrong for the royal blue backing fabric, and what's that loop in the stitching? Argh!!!
So, I ripped out the rows of quilting I had done (thank you, Netflix!), found some dark blue Aurifil for the bobbin, and started over. So far, so good, and so much better!
The frogs are smiling! :)
