Once the backing was pieced I was on a roll, and continued on by basting the quilt sandwich. As you can see I use loads of safety pins which certainly makes the whole basting process hard on your knees, back, and fingers (although I have had success using the Kwik Klip tool to close pins - it saves time and your fingers from pin pricks).
This morning I finally got to start the quilting, and I have finished stitching almost all of the foundation grid. This first step stabilizes the quilt sandwich and also quickly shows you if there are any issues with how well the quilt was basted. So far so good, no stitch ripping and re-pinning required.
I must say that I do enjoy Monday mornings, where the house is returned to its quiet state after a busy weekend. No hustle and bustle - just the hum of my sewing (and the washing) machine.
Are you quilting today?
