I'm still chipping away at the Lotta quilt. I finished piecing the top over a week ago, and it's been awaiting ironing ever since. It took me over an hour to press out all the seams and iron the top! An hour! Ironing is my least favorite household chore. So it's a good thing I love this quilt.
As it turns out, this quilt is going to be quite a beefy one, at 160cm by 180cm. Sure, not huge, but quite big enough for my little domestic sewing machine come quilting time. When that times does come, I'm thinking a wonky grid or vertical lines either side of the long seams, since there is already so much going on with the prints and I don't want too much quilting competing with all that pattern. I don't think Lotta even quilted hers (at least not that I can tell), but I'm keen for this to be a quilt rather than a coverlet or whatever you call non-quilted blankets. Anyhow. The backing (grey & white stripes) has been procured, as has the batting. So, let the basting begin.
