Spiderman is ready to quilt!

Here is the quilt sandwich laid out on the floor. In accordance with the demo on The Ulmer Quilter website found HERE, I did not baste or pin baste the quilt as I usually do. I only put some pins around the outside edge of the quilt. Of course, this would only work using the quilting frame. When machine quilting, I will need to pin baste well.

The quilting frame gently stretches the layers so there won't be any puckers. I am using Hobbs Heirloom Cotton Batting for this quilt. I "inherited" three queen size packages of this nice batting from my sister who isn't quilting any longer. This batting will give the quilt an old fashioned feel and when washed will have the look of an antique quilt.

Here it is in the frame.

I have all my quilting supplies ready. Quilting needles, hand quilting thread, small scissors and a quilt marker. I will only need the marker for marking quilting lines on the borders. First I will quilt the spider web lines in the center of the quilt, working my way to the outside. I'm not sure what pattern I will use for the borders yet, but probably a cable design.

This weekend, I plan to start quilting this Spiderman quilt, continue working on the leaders and enders quilts and make some new clothespin bags for my Etsy Shop.

I need to get one of those quilting racks! They are so neat. Anytime I try to quilt something bigger than crib size on the sewing machine, it's a disaster!
