Six of the teeny scrap rectangles (above) surround by pale green print (below) are attached and mated with batting and a pale blue backing fabric. Last night, in spite of a little bit of dread, I started quilting through all three layers. It’ll be fine. Square by square. No hoop. For weeks in the evening, I’ve been selecting a skein of floss and using it up — stitching open the little seams of the unbacked sections — going square by square until the thread was gone. It’s not that different with all the layers. I’ll need at least nine sets of six. As long as I can tolerate the mess in the living room, I can take my time.
