I had plans to sew this week. I always overestimate how much I can get done :0) One project was to piece the backing for my Crowfoot quilt.
Next was to get it basted for handquilting. I was going to try the Sharon Schamber method or at least use a table but... I am such a chicken and went with my reliable floor basting method. This is a large quilt - much larger than any I had thread basted before. It took 3 long evenings to baste. Wow, did my knees and elbows pay. I hope I've learned my lesson and will try something different next time!
Now though, I look forward to all the happy hours I will spend hand quilting.
I am a busy mom with 4 kids. My youngest is 5 and the oldest is 14. I love to quilt so when I am not parenting, cleaning, cooking... I am quilting. I like both sewing by hand and with my machine. I make mostly traditional style quilts.
