Okay. . . my quilt top is finished! There are still some threads to cut so ignore those! I had a heck of a time sandwiching everything together. For one: my apartment it too small. I thought my dining room would be big enough (after moving the table) but it wasn't :( . Second, I have two orange/white cats--which shed. . . . and I'm using a navy blue sheet for the backing. . . . :(
So I decided to drape it all over the table and start tying from the middle. BUT my needle wasn't sharp enough. What kind of needle should I be looking for? I had some tapestry needles and they would go through, but trying to get it back, in the right spot, was a problem. Of course, then I read the package and saw that they have blunt points. . . . I'm using cotton crochet thread to tie so the eye needs to be big enough for that. . . any suggestions? How about how to tie the knot? I did a search here and on google, but I'm just not getting it. I found this link but I either did it wrong or it just happens to be an ugly knot--cause I didn't like it!
I tell you--I thought piecing the top would be the difficult part--but the thought of tying a quilt made of 896 squares is a little daunting, to say the least. And I have NO idea how I'm gonna get the binding on--but I'll get there soon enough.
Thanks for any help!
