My polka dot "Mailbox" top is all sewn together!
(I still can't figure out where the name "Mailbox" came from for this pattern...
And I have yet to come up with another name.)
I am really pleased with this top,
especially since it is FULL of polka dots!!
This quilt was made from a kit from one of my local quilt shops.
Since polka dots are one of my favorites...
it was a must purchase.
Next is preparing the backing and sending it off to my LAQ.
After I finished my polka dot top,
I pulled out some batik scraps and started another quilt.
There were LOTS of HST's to piece and trim.
I keep them attached in the chain and line them up to trim.
This goes much faster for me and I am trimming
and cutting the threads to separate them all at the same time.
I just move down the mat and trim away.
Don't you just love these piles of trimmings??
The batik HST's are ready for pressing.
Oh I love batiks!!
Have a great weekend
