Jessica Skultety over at Quilty Habit hosted a quilt-a-long that started back in July. I had never participated in a quilt-a-long before, but the design looked fun and she set up a schedule with very manageable deadlines, so I decided to go for it. (A quilt-a-long is an event where the host chooses a pattern, then sets a schedule for participants to follow. The host provides the steps and offers hints and tips; participants post their progress as they follow along.)

I seem to be a bit linky-party impaired. The photos never load the way I want them to when I upload them directly. I hadn’t planned a blog post (I’m in the middle of moving over to a new host), but when Jessica e-mailed asking to see the full photo, I thought it would be a terrific opportunity to try something out that I heard about last week.

I figured since I only had the top done, if any residue was left on the fabric it wouldn’t be a huge deal. So I cut six pieces (about 2 1/2″ each) of this, which I happened to have on hand:

Scotch Outdoor Fasteners
Scotch Outdoor Fasteners (I bought this at Home Depot.)

And I walked up to the cabin in the woods behind my house, where I stuck the quilt top onto the chimney and took some pics. I do wish I’d had someone with me to stand back and let me know if it was uneven, but it turned out okay. So I present to you, the UNFINISHED “Morning, Noon, and Night” which was pieced in the summer of 2016.

“Morning, Noon, and Night” for Quilty Habit’s Star Light, Star Dark Quilt-a-Long

The adhesive left no residue, and I will surely use this location to shoot quilts again!

I love to hear from you.
