whew, most of today was taken up with basting, and i mean the old fashioned way, by hand with needle and thread. all ready to quilt now are 2 tablerunners, 2 little quilts and 2 twin size quilts. the christmas quilt front right is scrappy from top to bottom--even the background that is made up of scraps of white-on-white pieces and other white cottons from various projects, not enough of any to put in one project. i know it isn't matchy-matchy but definitely frugal and scrappy, which is just fine to me. **** these basted projects will join others on the shelf waiting for quilting; 2 bed size, 4 wallhanging and 1 little quilt. there's also the 2 amish bed size in progress, so even if i don't start anything new, i've got enough to keep me sewing for a couple of years anyway. stick around, could be there'll be plenty to show in months to come.
