Day 302

Popsicles make a wonderful dessert for kids, and are wonderful time savers for grown-ups. While the kids were eating/licking/anthropomorphizing their popsicles I washed the dishes. That meant the kitchen was clean before bed time so I had the sewing machine set up by 7:45!

I’m working on a secret project for a friend so I can’t show you pictures but I did do some quilting tonight. Yay.

I basted the quilt this afternoon on my design wall instead of the floor. Much easier on the knees for sure.

This is the back of the quilt here. I wanted to choose my thread when I had good light this afternoon so I popped out my thread drawer and put it on my stove so that I didn’t have to walk back and forth.

Yep, that’s all the thread I have.

Day 211

Basted!

Everything worked out perfectly, and this might even be the most successful basting ever. (I think I’ve been stretching my backs too taught.) I spray basted everything and pin basted in the centres of the pluses.

Now to quilt this beast.
