I know it’s too early to celebrate, but….

An hour of this

is extremely

Honeycomb quilt

rewarding.

Though you can bet I’ll be whining about the soreness tomorrow, because pin basting a 100″ x 106″ quilt is one of the toughest workouts evah.

    Lovely!!! I am in great envy of that space on a carpeted floor. That is the way I do it too but I usually pin first and then baste … about five or six hours running. That is going to be a real treasure.

      I am fortunate to have a large place to lay out quilts, I know not everyone is. Here in Michigan we have a lower level and ours is a TV game room so lots of space, once I move some of the clutter out of the way….. 100 quilts later and now I find out I may be doing it all wrong?!! I have never thread basted a quilt, in my life. Am I supposed to be doing that, too???

    That quilt will be beautiful, and it is wonderful that you can quilt it yourself. I am finishing up a 96 x 109 top and I am taking the beast to someone to quilt. All of your hard work will be worth it!

    What a beautiful quilt! I baste with needle and thread, but probably both come with aches and pains. I never thought to use safety pins, good idea.
