I had a LOT of pink strips, and a lot of extra batting, and some pinkish FQs. What are ya gonna do? No quilt name yet, but I know where it's going. This method might not be for everyone, but I sure had fun! I learned how to get that backing sashing strip close to perfect, by heavy pinning, and then stitching in the ditch from the front, and slowly pulling out the pins as I sewed. I'm happy with the result.
New subject, below: Plumber was needed, drain had been running slowly for months and I knew there was more then just a clog - something also wasn't correct about the pipe angle. Mr. Plumber started with his snake, and then I heard, "Uh oh - that's not good"! Yes, the snake itself broke in the pipes and was hopelessly stuck.
There was no alternative except this decision, in the adjoining wall, yes, the wall in my new, clean, freshly painted Sewing Studio. NO drywall guy is going to do this job, because you do a little at a time, let dry, a little more another time, let dry, etc. So, I went to YouTube, and I think I can do it myself! May take me a while but I'm game. Worst part it that it's low on the wall Best part is my drain is working perfectly, first time in many years.
