Onto actual quilting, not just topping!

Well, shortly I'm hopefully updating my kitchen.  Yayyy to me.  Unfortunately, I will lose the only space in my house where I can lay out backing, batting and top to baste for quilting.  Given that I'm not a big machine quilter anyway, it's just another barrier to me in the completion stakes!
So, this morning I decided I'd better actually use the floor before I loose it.  I moved the kitchen table out, washed the floor (and very nearly threw in the towel then and there!), and began. 
One quilt down, only another 4 or 5 to do. 
Here's my quilt when we'd finished the pin basting , I actually managed to enlist the help of oldest DD in closing the pins.  What a girl.
See the sparkly pins.  Millions of them, or it felt like it.
This is one of Bonnie K Hunter's
mystery quilts from a couple of years ago.
It's part of my 10 in '10 pledge- to finish 10 quilts in 2010 from Linda's Blog so I'd best get to it.
I keep getting side-tracked onto new projects.  Oh well.


  1. Good for you to plug away on your Ten in '10. I know how tedious it can be to pin baste a big quilt, or two, so a big hoorah for you for getting it done. Great job!

  2. You did a great job! Love the pattern and colours!
    Have a great monday!

  3. Go you! Actual'll be able to say "finished" and not get told "it's not a quilt until it's quilted" *LOL*
