I am completely pinned out in so many ways.
When I am ready to sandwich a quilt I set up a trestle table so I can lay out the quilts. I use a table because I am not too keen about crawling around the floor.
I work on the idea that if I have taken the trouble to put up the table I should make the best use of it. So I decided the pin 4 quilts! I must be crazy.
None of the quilts was too large – lap size through to single bed. But in the process I ran out of pins half way through the last one in the picture. So a quick trip for more to finish the task. And then I still used all of the new ones too.
It was great to get all of them done but my fingers sure are sore today.
This quilt is from one of the Moda Bake Shop patterns. Lots of lovely half square triangles.
I have started quilting this with straight lines – horizontal, vertical and diagonal -but staying mostly on the white fabric. That’s why the pins are only in the coloured sections of the quilt. For once I planned ahead with my pin placement.
So you know what I will be doing for the next few days – quilting four quilts!
