Sewing and Quilting should be Olympic Sports - don't you agree?

They should be! I work up such a sweat! I'm fortunate enough that my family has air conditioning, but I really think I get quite a work out =o)

I've been doing a little of this...

(not quilting, but design - I didn't want the black thread to show on the backing because I'll be quilting the whole thing in white)

And this...

(basting. My least favorite part of quilting. I wish I didn't have a least favorite part, but I do. I know it partially has to do with the fact that I don't have enough space anywhere in my house!)

I'll have the quilting and binding done within the next few days (I hope! At least by the weekend, because I'll be substitute teaching all week.)

What are you up to today?


  1. I think everyone has a part they like less than all the others. I think they all begin with B -- borders basting and binding. Still, if you are basting, it means you are finishing and that is a good thing.

  2. I don't mind basting but it's not the easiest part of quilting, is it? I find it hard to get it all tight enough! Mind you, I have only completed two quilts so my opinion might change! LOL

  3. Yes, the quilting Olympics that would be fun :)

  4. But look at you go, girl!! Really cute quilt. :) I must admit I don't like the cutting OR the basting---have you tried spray-basting?


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
