Quilt Inspection: Batting Coziness=good

July 4, 2012 at 11:01 am 10 comments


George and EyeRa approve the batting for my Jacob’s Ladder class sample.

This house came with mirrored closet doors in every room. Mostly, they’re just a cause for irritation as they always need cleaning. BUT, in my quilt room, the mirrors are opposite the poxy design wall I mentioned earlier, so they’re great for a fresh perspective on designs. With the quilt frame now taking up a huge amount of space, I also get a view of what’s happening while I work from the other side.

The Jacob’s Ladder quilt is finished except for hand-sewing the binding. I had a little trouble getting the batting to roll up evenly…at least until the two inspectors decided it was better to go under the batting and pretend it was a tent!

    Too cute!
    I have to put my kitties “up” in the bath/bedroom when I quilt. I have a midarm and it’s in our living room. They are still young enough to want to pull on it and have a major fighting fling in all the hanging stuff. They love to walk the “poles” when I have it shut down and pushed against the wall.

    Quilting kitties can be so helpful can’t they? My previous one like to sit right on the sewing machine cabinet & closely watch. The current two are more into arranging blocks and testing the final product. πŸ™‚

    Too funny! How did you come up with the name EyeRa?

      George’s name came first, since he is a peach colour – Georgia peach translated into George for a male. The only name that I thought fit with George is Ira (as in the musical composers George and Ira Gershwin). The eccentric spelling is a conceit to go with the markings around his eyes – they’re charcoal and reminiscent of the stylized eye symbols on heiroglyphics, hence EyeRa. Hey, it made sense at the time!

    LOL!!! This is why I don’t let my kitties stay in my studio. (It’s a seperates building from my home.) They can do a walk around looking for mices but don’t stay. Just in case any of my clients are allergic to cats.
