The View From Above

While I was basting quilts en masse last week, I couldn't help but take pictures from the second story. Just a peek at the life of a serial quilter - quilts and batting literally dominate the living room.

Doe Improv quilt - just needs binding now!

And the back of my epic medallion quilt... I really lucked out with floor space somehow (that's a queen size+ quilt).

    1. Thank you, Robby! Once I finally decided how to quilt it (with the help of many) it rose on my *want to finish* list!

  2. You have a pretty house- and how wonderful that you have enough space to baste a large quilt. Serial basting - I don't think my knees could handle that!

  4. Totally make me wish I had stairs above my basting area so I could get a shot like this! Can't wait to see how you quilt your medallion!

  5. You may want to try the method that uses two boards. You can sit at your dining room table to baste. I will never go back to crawling on the floor. If you try it - Blue tape the quilt to the board to keep those first turns in line.

    1. Thanks Linda! I have tried table basting before, which sounds similar. This is just such a huge quilt!

  6. Jess, you are only just up the road. Please come down here and help me, lol
    I have several quilt tops neatly folded and hanging in the closet.
    I need to get started on that..... I have startophobia.
    I finished one baby quilt for Sarah. Go me.

    I love your view from upstairs, pretty living room and quilts!

    1. Oh and the first photo looked like someone sitting on the couch in a bathrobe and a towel on the head and feet in a snuggly bun warmer hahaha
      I thought that might have been your sister just hanging out and did not feel like moving lol

  7. I'm not sure why, but I see a cute pudgy robot in the improv quilt. I guess it's kind of like guessing cloud shapes, but from the bloglovin icon picture, I was certain it was a robot and then surprised when It was just an improv shape. Either way, my comment is actually a compliment whether you intended it to look that way or not...robots are awesome!
