I hate basting a quilt whether it is for machine or hand quilting, but I decided to tackle basting the house quilt this morning.
Here is the backing and batting clamped to my cutting table.
Here is the top clamped to the table and ready for basting. Things look pretty square. I think it will take several days for me to baste it. Have to give the back and neck breaks periodically.
Meanwhile I am waiting for my fabric for my Van Gogh quilt to be printed by Spoonflower. Once that comes in about 2 weeks I can get going on that quilt. I am thinking of sketching out the power plant so I am ready to work on it when the fabric arrives. Note: As soon as I published this I got a message from Spoonflower that my fabric has been printed and shipped! Should have it in a week.
I am also signed up for EB's new abstract class that starts this Friday at Academy of Quilting. So it looks like I will be busy.
Thanks for reading.
