Helping a friend......

I'm helping a friend baste her monster size quilt.  The table top size is 60" x 96" so it holds a little over half of the quilt.  Here is a closeup of one section of it.

I also went outside while it was nice, about 50 degrees, and raked leaves off my back flower beds.  I couldn't bag the leaves because they are wet so they are in piles along the edge of the flower bed.  I hope we get enough dry days that I can take care of them.

Very fun quilt! It must be heavy with all those seams.

That certainly is a mega quilt! Love all the colors! Did not get warm here yesterday and today it is only supposed to get to 26. At least that is better than the big snow dump last Tuesday and Wednesday.

What a beautiful quilt! Must be for a king sized bed. My millennium quilt was about that size. It finished 96" x 120" and I quilted it on my home machine!

I love scrappy quilts and this one is a beauty.

That is one large (!) quilt! Gorgeously scrappy - but huge. It was in the 80s here yesterday - rainy, cool, and maybe 60s today. Ahhhh, spring (and the pollen is starting to cover everything now).

Question? Why don't you baste quilts on the longarm? It is one of the best reasons for having a long arm!!! and if you don't want to do it.... set the stitch length and let the quilt owner do it, with supervision, of course!

I was wondering why you don't baste on the long arm too....read your earlier post about this quilt and then went on to read about the Blooming 9 patch pattern and quilt. It sure is pretty but it must be difficult to make ???

This is such a great quilt. Imagine all the memories in those fabric pieces. Beautiful.

That's an amazing quilt! How will You're so good to help your friend get in done. How will she get it quilted?

I, too, am wondering how this behemoth will be quilted. Not the design, but the mechanics. If not on a long arm... A sewing machine? By hand??? My mind boggles.

It's certainly gorgeous, though!
