I'm putting the rest of the dye equipment away for the season. The poly blankets are rinsed clean and dry. I can't bring myself to throw away this ironstone platter and will try one more time to mend it somehow. It's so big and heavy and the break so unbalanced that, so far, no glue has been strong enough. I'm willing to go the duct tape route if I can find white. It's been a good, useful friend.
I took the current utility quilt outside to see just how many chips I'd made and what the overall size would be. Enought by far!
Now the trick is to sash them up and/or whack away with the rotary cutter until they are all the same dimensions. Then comes the layout to please the eye and finally, the sandwiching and machine quilting. I am fresh out of purple!
