I hate this part of quilting! It's called "sandwiching" the layers together.
It wouldn't be so bad if I had a place large enough to lay out a nearly 9ft. x 9ft. quilt top.
I have given up basting the quilt since I discovered the baste-by-safety-pin method. It's much easier.
I've worked on this for over an hour this morning and am not yet done. The problem is that I used some of the batting for other projects and now I have to piece it together which takes a lot of time.
I decided to take a short coffee/blog break and then will sew the last piece of batting and finish holding it together with safety pins. I will feel really good when it's all folded up just waiting for me to get in the mood to quilt it.
Last night I went to Wally's World and found another tablecloth marked down. How could I resist this one? I knew it would be a perfect match to my 1950's Pyrex turquoise dishes.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
