Quilt With Us

My birthday

Hello! Yep, today is my birthday! No, I'm done counting! LOL. There are some sad things in my life right now. We have to put our beloved Newfie, Julie, down friday. She has agressive bone cancer. Poor baby. That is such a hearache, on the heels of such joy she has given for 9 years. She will be missed. I haven't been sleeping well. So I stay up late and work on my DGD quilt. Piecing this top has been my therapy. My solace and comfort. Amazing that quilting can do that for us, isn't it?

I am sewing quarter square triangles together on the short side. They keep slipping, ending up crooked when sewn. Also they are stretchy, of course. How to I counter that? Any suggestions are welcome.

Soft backing

My DGD is turning 9 next week. I am working on a quilt she is helping to design for her. She has been pretty specific on what she wants! And she wants the backing to be all one piece and has to be SOFT. I thought flannel. But not too crazy about using flannel on a pieced cotton quilt. Any suggesstions?
