Basting the Beast

Well, you guys voted and so I took on the challenge.  The giant blue and white quilt is basted, my knees are busted and I've pretty much worked out how I'm going to tackle the quilting designs.  And now I need a cup of tea.


  1. That was a big job!! I love the blue and white fabric. Can't wait to see it finished. I think basting is the hardest part.

  2. It will be great to see the finished quilt, are you machine quilting or hand?

  3. Good job! Maybe you could have used something a little stronger than tea!

  4. Wao, the blue and white fabrics are looking so attractive. I like it very much. There are many companies such as Yourshed which are also providing this facilities. So, I really enjoyed it .Thanks for nice post.
