Well, another great use of the weekend. I'm in count down mode to use my kitchen floor baste-ing space before my new kitchen gets going and I no longer have the room.
So , bright and mid-afternoon (LOL), I got out the backing I took all day to stitch yesterday, and started by sticking it to my floor.
Why does it always take me so long to sew together a backing. I think a lot of it's in my mind! But when I have to stitch several pieces of fabric together it takes me ages.
Anyway, backing stuck down then batting and finally the top. Yayyyyy. Onto the hardest part- the pin basting.
So once again I enlisted help of the kids and that helped get the job done.
Here's a photo of the quilt all basted.
Bonnie K. Hunter of Quiltville. I really love stitching along on her mystery quilts.
I still have another 4 or 5 quilts to pinbaste, but I think I may run out of pins before I finish. I have 2 1/2 boxes of safety pins left. Crossed fingers it will see me through.
As a thankyou to the DK's what better way to spend a cold wintery evening at the start of 2 weeks of school holidays than toasting marshmellows?
