I got my lynnebobsquarepants basted yesterday. After seeing loads of pictures recently on Instagram (I am sewonderfulife by the way) of people basting on their kitchen/dining tables, I decided to give it a go
It was the easiest quilt I have ever basted. I can definitely recommend. My table isn't big enough for a whole quilt, but it draped over the sides and all went together beautifully.
Now I just keep looking at pictures to decide how to quilt it: I want to hand quilt. I started last night but didn't like what I did so will be unpicking.
hank you to the overwhelming number of comments on my Sew Mama Sew giveaway. I have looked at so many of the places that people have suggested and my travel wish list has just got soooo much longer!
Nice that you are started handquilting - will we see this at FQR? Hope so, if you are able to transport it!ReplyDelete
