Making progress

Tonight I began basting my quilt with the intention of quilting it tomorrow arvo.
Once all the pins were in and my little loves were fast asleep, I couldn't help but make a start on the quilting.



I am using a white chenille bedspread for the backing-it belonged to the Mister's Grandfather.
I am quilting along the diagonals. It's looking... umm very 'handmade'...but I am happy enough.

I am just having a tea break and watching Jaws 3. Have you seen it? Were you a Jaws fan?

Again, I'd love to know if you recognise any squares that you sent into the fabric swap.

It's looking wonderful! Yesterday I cut out more squares for my quilt. I think I'm making it 11x16 rows. But I'm just guessing here... Row many rows did you make yours? I can see 11 in one direction but can't tell the other.

Lea it looks fantastic. I need to get going with mine, I'm just a bit frightened of the quilting bit, having not done any before. x
