Basting in the heat

It is a tad warm out today.  But it is August in New England after all.  So I have the fan cranking while I'm cranking on basting my quilt.

I have been anxious to finish up my En Provenance quilt.  I learned so much about color and value with this quilt and I can hardly wait for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt for this year.

I think I have the perfect quilting plan too.  I love HandiQuilter's Minute Motifs.  They seem like just the thing for someone (me) who doesn't have all that many machine quilting hours under their belt.

The nice thing about a really scrappy quilt is that all that really will be seen is the texture of the quilting, so my "mistakes" will be hidden.  I know the only way to get better at machine quilting is to practice.  And my huge pile of quilt tops isn't getting any smaller.  So I better get to practicing....but first, back to basting (not the funnest part of the process LOL)

Piecefully yours....


  1. I saw the picture on my phone and it looked spectacular. It looks equally well on the computer. Your quilting plan is terrific. I look forward to seeing the finished quilt.

  2. Your Bonnie quilt is so fun--that quilting design is going to be perfect!
