I am participating in the Boxing Day Sew-in being sponsored by Sandy of the Quilting for the Rest of Us podcast. There are several podcasters and bloggers who are participating and offering giveaways. Go check it out at Sandy's Blog.
Basting my quilts is the least favorite part of making a quilt for me. I have tried pin basting and spray basting. I really like Sarah's Tutorial on Maching Quilting 101. She shows how to spray baste. I have used this method quilt successfully, however, the spray is expensive and it is difficult to find the floor space to baste a large quilt. It is also pretty hard on the body!
My two most recent quilts ( I will post pictures later today) were pin basted. I was reminded how I don't like pin basting. It is easy to baste the quilt, but difficult to quilt. I broke a couple of needles.
I have to recommend a blog and Podcast. Sara at Stash Resolution is giving away 6 fat quarter bundle of the new fabric line Delilah. It is beautiful. Go check it out at Sara's Blog and enter to win. If you would like to buy some of this fabric, be sure to visit Sara's Etsy shop--Swell Cloth.
Here is a quick picture of the new babies hatched today. They are hungry! My hubby had to take a quick picture because the daddy is in the background wanting to feed these two. We hope to get a better picture soon...
I am a full-time mom, wife and Registered Nurse. I have two kids--a 21 year old son, and 14 year old daughter. My husband of 23 years is a school teacher. We are trying to "live like no one else now, so that, later, we can live like no one else".
