    First finish in 2013 and free motion tip

    I made this scrappy for my husband and after I got it done found some eyelashing on the back, oh well (just hope it holds up)! I periodically checked the back, but evidently it wasn't enough. He picked out the fabric for the border, he's a musician on the weekends. I backed it with flannel as he's always cold due to diabetes. Tip: I learned this from a lady who taught a free-motion class to use glycerin on you fingers instead of gloves. The glycerin helps you hold on to the quilt and it doesn't stain the fabric. I buy it in the cake decorating supplies.
