Slow progress, piece by piece, on putting the scraps quilt together.
It’s about half done. A pessimist would say half not-done.
- Does the batting beard through the seams (because paper piecing effectively presses seams open rather than to one side)? – No, it doesn’t. Not in the least.
- Do the spaces between the squares (where the batting is joined) feel any different? Is the quilt any thinner or less ‘quilted’ at these parts? – No, it isn’t.
- Does the quilt ‘bend’ more readily at the joins between squares? – No.
- Does it feel in all other respects just like a ‘normal’ quilt? – Yes, I think it does.
Really quite amazing what you can do with a few evenings and a needle and thread.
And practically no social life.
Just the way I like it.
