It is quite a process but Michelle instills confidence in all of us and makes it easy! A spray adhesive is used to hold the backing to the batting. Once the backing is secure, the quilt top is adhered to the top of the batting. Michelle advised all of us to then wait a full twenty-four hours before stitching to make sure the spray adhesive is fully dry.
Michelle also showed us how we will be stitching on a quilt label to the back of our quilts. The label will identify our group along with the person who made it, if they wish to include their name. Michelle shares all of her tips and helpful hints, from her years of experience, with all of us and we are thankful for that. We love our class meetings and enjoy the camaraderie and conversations with our friends.
Information on how to join the class and also on how to receive a quilt is on the Honor Quilters page on our website. Members who wish to join now will be in the next class, which will be starting in the fall, perfect timing for quilt making! If you are interested, contact Michelle at Michellequilts3996@gmail.com. The photos below were taken during Monday's class...enjoy!
