It was time for my least favorite part of quilting–basting the quilt sandwich. I don’t mind the actual quilting, but the prep- yuck. I feel the same way about this as I do painting walls. Hate the prep (and clean up) but love the painting itself.
We have a small house with not much space for basting. But I got to thinking–we’ve got lots of big conference room tables at work and this quilt is for a co-worker, so why not!
All pinned and ready to go! Even though I worked on this after hours, some of the really dedicated folks were still hard at work. I got into some fun conversations about quilting as they walked by the room. One guy told me all about his mom’s quilts and how much she loves quilting–nice moment!
