Today has been quite exciting already, I have just got my Pinterest account accepted! So check me out! I've begun to pop a few pics up there of my quilts, it seems a lot more fun to use than Tumblr was so we'll see if this one makes the cut! :)
Yesterday I tried out Sharon Shambers quilt basting technique using two planks of wood that I shared recently
It worked fairly well! I think I need a bit more practice, the batik fabric was a little slippy to get the rolling started, but the "hand basting while sitting at a table" well that is just fantastic, it may take a little longer, but with no back ache and a better result, there's no competition!
Even when I taped to some tables and pin basted over them I would rush because my back would get so sore, now I can work in sections and not take up half as much space either.
Pics to come after Feb :) unfortunately they give a little bit too much away of the blanket!
Next stop.. Quilting the Quilt!
And what better pic to leave you with seeing as I cant show you anything today...
:) its not like you couldnt guess...
