This week I have been working on my Island Batik project for this months blog hop.
If you want the line up, just see the post below this one or go here:  That way you can sign up for the giveway.
Notice the Aurfil thread?  It matches but I decided to go with dark brown for the front....and I am worried I will not have enough.  It takes a lot of thread to do a king size quilt....hummm  should have thought of that.

This is my backing which is 108" fabric, got it from Marshalls but I had to extend it 10 inches on the top and sides.  Try ironing it....

Took me a evening to iron and get it on the longarm.
Looks like I am crooked here....ignore that.

I have been working on this mostly at night.  My mother has been taking a good portion of my days lately.

Next I want to show you the most fun thing I ordered.

Messy bobbing...usually there are threads everywhere!!!

                                            Not any more with these Tulips Bobbin Clamps

Do I sound like a commercial (smiling) trust me, there is nothing in it for me but happiness.

I love them.....

I'm sure you have been busy, Barb. It's hard to be pulled in so many directions. Those little bobbins clamps are really nice.

Such a tease! Can't wait to see this quilt upon completion! Loving those colorful bobbin holders! Beats the ziplock baggie I keep all mine in! Would make a great gift for a Quilty friend or two! Must keep them in mind! Thanks for sharing.

I have not seen those tulip bobbin clamps before....interesting!
I think you need to get Mr. Bejeweled to make you a larger ironing surface. I know it would help with ironing those big backings. said...

I got some of those as a Christmas Gift Exchange, love them! The bobbin holders that is.

Ironing big backs like that is hard work! Not my favorite, but I do feel so accomplished when I get it done. =)

Cool way to organize your bobbins!!
