After receiving the fabric order for Scala, I was eager to cut the fabric and get started.
Since cutting the fabric is my least favorite step in the quilt making process, I was excited to get it complete. I had the best intentions to take more photos of my progress in making the Scala quilt, but the honest truth of it was that I was having so much fun with the piecing that I got the entire quilt top pieced before I even thought about picking up my camera again.
The Scala quilt top turned out just the way I had hoped!
As part of the piecing process, there were some Bonus HSTs remaining, and I have a plan for turning them into a pieced backing for the quilt. What I was not counting on last week was coming down with the flu. Thankfully I was able to get the quilt top pieced before getting sick, so now that I’m feeling better, I hope to get the backing pieced and the quilt basted and ready for quilting this week.
Speaking of basting and quilting, I will be using a black batting for the first time with the Scala quilt. I’m not sure why I haven’t used a black batting before, but it makes a LOT of sense for me to use black batting on this quilt. I usually use Quilter’s Dream Dream Green batting, so I am looking forward to trying something new by using their black poly batting.
