Between texts back and forth to my younger sister and having my BBC Top Gear fellow entertaining me , I got the top sewn together and trimmed last evening! Yeah! I was surprised how long it took me to trim it. I had to be careful as there was not a lot of room for error. I would mark the corners and sides with tailors wax which disappears with heat before I made any cuts. I wanted this to be the maximum size it was allowed. It is just a bit under 6' x 6'.
I want to add this REM patch somewhere on the quilt in honor of my brother who toured with them on every tour since 1987.
Tonight I will start working on the backing. I have lots of music related fabric so I will piece something (hopefully interesting) together to add another design element.
