Today it is cold and dark. I finished piecing the backing for the baby quilt and laid it out on the cold apartment floor. Then I laid out and pieced the batting using thinsulate #80. I finished adding the remaining birds to the tree, went over the seams with the iron, and laid it out on top.
Though I prefer thread basting, the apartment has the power turned off, and being rather cold and dark, and seeing how nicely the quilt lay on the batting, I decided to use my pin collection to get the job done.
I will first just quilt in the ditch.
Then I will have to figure out how to quilt the larger areas and the borders.
So ... the quilt for little Phoebe is growing almost as fast as she is.
for now, it is off in the rain to choir practice. Hopefully the rain will finish before the nature hike on Saturday.
