I loaded a medium grey cotton fabric of approximately the width I thought I would need. I really debated whether or not a batting was needed but in the end decided to add one.
Then came the cans and bags of fabric collected over the life of my longarm. I'm sure I am missing a can but am not going to worry as I am pretty sure there is enough. Amazing what one little coffee can can hold.
|A typical mix.
Then it was a matter of placing the thread on the grey backing and mixing, and mixing, and mixing.
Cover it with a water soluble stabilizer and I am all ready to start quilting.
Maybe tomorrow...... so stay tuned for the next stage of the Thread Play fun.
