Tim was away in Calgary this week for a conference so I was able to rearrange my livingroom furniture and layout my batik quilt blocks. It was nice to be able to leave them on the floor for a few days while I arranged and rearranged the blocks until I was satified with the layout. They are all sewn together now and I just need to get the borders on. Problem is I only have the outer border so I might just have to dye some fabric this week to make an inner border. Any suggestions as to what color to aim for?? I haven't dyed anything in this color tone before so it might take a few tries to get something that will be suitable. I want to dye the fabric for the backing too.
I have been quilting for over 20 years and have turned my passion for quilting into a home business. Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting opened it's doors January 2009 on the shores of Schist Lake in Northern Manitoba. I have recently moved to Emo, ON and looking forward to discovering all the beauty of the area and meeting new quilters.
This blog is where I share photos of my quilts as well as my clients quilts. I also enjoy dyeing fabric especially snow dyeing as we have snow 6 months of the year. I have thrown in few personal stories about living on the shores of Schist Lake and now I'm ready to explore and share photos of the area around Emo, Ontario as life isn't all about quilting.
