A Summer Sandwich... Quilt Sandwich that is.
I took advantage of the long Labor Day Weekend to make the Summer of 2010 nine patch challenge quilt sandwich. This is really a lot of work! Friday night I began the process by deciding where I was going to spread out the quilt for basting. I decided to use the sewing room floor so that the quilt wouldn't be in the way of everybody's comings and goings all weekend. I took down the ironing board, pushed everything to the walls and cleaned the floor very well.
The backing fabric and the quilt top must be ironed very well. Then there is lots of crawling around on the floor taping down the backing, spreading out the quilt top and pin basting the whole thing.
So now I am ready to start machine quilting on this one this coming weekend.
