B side finished

Last night I was up to something easy. Straight line sewing sounds easy enough. I was expecting the electricity going off as the hurricane Xaver was passing by. So I got ready for bed and sewed in my PJ's. I do live in lower part of the country so it didn't get that bad and I was able to finish the B side. According to the news it didn't reach the speed of hurricane but it still caused some damage. It hit the other countries much harder so I hope everyone is safe and sound. It's still extra windy so there is no way of getting outdoor pictures.

The two sides go really well together. There are few fabrics that don't seem to fit but I'm learning to look at it as a whole. Not picking up on unmatching bits. I kind of tend to put the blues to the bottom.



But it looks just fine the other way round as well. The B side is bigger for the quilting purposes. It's going to the quilting pro and I'll share the outcome once available.


I took a picture of wavy binding I wrote about in my previous post. Not flat at all. Once I add the wood to the bottom with additonal weight it looks fine and have you noticed our wall is all white by now :-) It looks much better. If you missed my advent calendar post, check it out here.


Linking up with TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts.

  16. B Side is quite a nice addition to the fantastic front! Awesome job! Your star quilt wall hanging is quite lovely. I have one hanging on the wall that has some wave to it too! I probably should weigh it down as well.
