More basting, some quilting................

I started basting this quilt yesterday.  It will take a couple days because I don't stick with it for more than an hour at a time.




I started quilting this 42" square wallhanging.  I am quilting 1/4" on each side of the seam and the strips are 1" wide so it ends up as rows 1/2" apart.  I'm doing all of the light strips first and then I'll come back and do the colors. 

This is the time of year when the basement is cold.  When it gets up to 60 outside late in the day the heat doesn't come on and it gets too cold to work down there.  In the mornings I pop the heat up to take the chill off so that is the best time to work down there.

Your progress is going great. I have a small baby quilt I need to get basted and quilted. Maybe today. Chris

Still trying to learn my long arm. Almost finished a baby quilt yesterday. Having a hard time with diagonals. Love the lines on your black and white strips.

I have been known to wear my warm bathrobe over my clothes, in order to work in my basement studio. :) Happy Easter, Wanda!

That straight line quilting looks wonderful.

Your foot of the machine looks like a walking foot, but you often talk about longarm quilting. Is this similar to quilting with a walking foot on a sewing machine?

Do you tie off and bury the knot at each change from white to color? It looks great.

I need to baste a top for quilting too. Perhaps after this coming week when we are expecting visitors, I can set up my table and get one done.

I do so like that quilt! It just looks like it's melting in candy goodness right off the table.
