I started quilting the beast. It's been a long time since I worked on such a large quilt.
It's not really that large I know, but for the last few years I had been making small pieces. 12"x12" or even smaller.
I did the sandwich in the usual way and usual place (my living room floor). I used safety pins to secure the layers together. The batting is cotton and the backing is a old bedsheet that I hand-dyed.
In some areas, I'm quilting lines, very close lines. It's taking me forever on my old faithful machine.
I also started a new collaboration with a very young quilter. It's ready for quilting too. And it makes me smile just thinking of it!
