Pin, pin, pin. I used every safety pin in the house and then had to change to t- pins and then had to run out to the store in a snow storm to get more pins. But I think it was worth it.
I put the pins closer together than I usually do but, look, it’s really flattened out, hasn’t it? I’m very satisfied to see it less lumpy and bumpy. It still has the weird turn-y bit at the bottom but that’s actually growing on me.
Here’s the other side post pinning. It’s not as flat as the top but I think that’s inevitable. Well, maybe not inevitable for for everyone but it’s inevitable for me at this point in my quilting life. The process of making a quilt sandwich – especially a large one – always leaves me with a messy bottom. That did not sound right. But you know what I mean.
There. All pinned and folded up and ready for the weekend. I get together with friends for the weekend every year at this time of year. It is a fabulous time. We hang out and eat and drink and talk and make stuff. This is my take along project. This and a bunch of mail art supplies so this may come back looking exactly like it looks right now.
Now the decision to be made is what to quilt it with. I’m bringing along all of my embroidery thread (Which seems to multiply all by itself) and even if I don’t get actual work done on this, I still hope to have at least made the decision about what color I’ll choose to sew it together with.
Wish me luck!
