Quick Tip - Measuring Quilt Backing
Now, what do hallways have to do with crafting. Well, I was getting two quilt tops ready to send away for quilting and I was driving myself crazy with the measurements. You know, an extra 8 inches long/wide.
I decided to roll out the backing fabric in the hallway to measure and I placed two layers on top of each other. Then I just placed the quilt top on top of the backing fabric and measured sixteen inches from the end of the top longer and then cut a semi-straight line. Wow, so much easier. Then I just squared up the backing pieces and then on to the piecing together and trimming width and I'm done. I always knew there was a better use of the hallway space :-)
As far as sunsets, we had a beautiful one last night. It was so pink/purple. I was trying to capture the colors with the digital camera to use with some kaleidoscope software I have. It will also be nice to place on my computer monitor as a background. For our area, this is a great sunset but I've also seen some beautiful ones on other blogs.
