For the last two days, I have been sooo tired that all I could do is hit the bed. It is a good thing that I have time to finish the quilt this weekend. I have found a backing fabric for the quilt, put I will still have to piece it. So, since I have never pieced a backing before, does anyone out there know how to do it? What I need to know is two things: (1) What seam allowance do I use? Do you do 1/4” or 1/2” or 5/8”? (2) Do I press the seam open or close? Thank you for your help on this.
Well it is bowling season for me. I bowl in a summer league on Friday nights. This bowling league has been together for 36 years and I have been in it for a least 6 or 7 years. It is called Friday Fellowship League and it is a summer fun league. We play bingo during bowling, play song blocks (listening to music and guessing the song and artist), and also have raffle ticket drawings. All these games you win from $15 to $35. We even have a wheel of fortune which you can win up to $100.00 At the end of August we have a big Banquet at Martin’s Crosswinds with guess artist such as Kool & The Gang, Zap Band, Morris Day & Time, WAR and this year Jeffrey Osborn. All free to league members and about $40 for guess. It is always a sold out event.
This is me with one of the Zap Band Members last year. I do have a picture of me and Jerome from Morris Day & The Time, put could not find it along with one of Bill Graham
So must likely will not be blogging on Fridays, since I have to get to the bowling alley by 8:00 and most nights do not get home until after 12:00. You will be quilting info from me along with Bowling scores from now until August.
