Monday's Plan forA Quilt

Now-a-days......   making a quilt starts with an idea.... a vision.....someone's wishful statement....  "I wonder if ....."

So, a dear friend presented the idea as a finished display of a full size artistic quilt which would be placed under glass and permanently displayed in our church foyer!    And the date ?   January 2019!

Merriam Webster Word of the Day...... is. MEANDER

I Choose Sunday "Serenity"

But I must do a confession --- as it is a Spring Forward (time clocks) Sunday for 2018....  

I really plan to give this Serenity Prayer Wall Hanging to a dear sister friend.   I'm going to order two more panels.... to give to my daughter... and then to post for sale via Bquiltin Studio!

SaveTime Quilt Tip: Hanging Sleeve Should Be Made Early On....

Thus.... I'm gonna cut basic white fabric (from Goodwill decent cotton sheets)   I cut them 9 1/2 inches..... in order to make the 4" sleeves that will be needed for the upcoming SJMBC Centennial Quilt Show (December 1919 - December 2020)   A year of celebration!!

Hanging Sleeves and Quilt Labels !!!..... the basics.   Now I know it.... Like I learned my lesson about the binding.   Do it  plzzzzzzz  -- Save time and put away procrastination.....   Do the Hanging Sleeves, labels and binding....  the last three steps....   Have it done before I quilt the quilt on my longarm  machine !!!
