two sunny days in a row...

the sun came out again today, with a wonderful frost everywhere first thing.
while it was out, finally managed to get a photo of my latest quilt top - 12 months in the making and still needs backing - along with another 4 quilt tops, but this is my least favourite bit, well, the basting is - I hate basting!!! once a top is complete i just want to move onto the next project. I would love one of those long arm quilting machines to do it for me, and also a lottery win to pay for it and the space I would need! oh well, one can dream I suppose.

It is wonderful!! I agree the basting etc is not my favourite part either.

The word 'basting' makes me shudder! My father is a tailor by trade and "baste,baste,baste" was drummed into me from a very young age,so I can say with authority the most important thing you can do for a professional finish when making clothes is.................... use pins!! lol.
Thanks for your kind comments over at my blog.
