Steam Basting Adventure



Ha ha I wanted to get a funny picture of me steam basting the hugantic enormungous Trip Around the World quilt. Okay, I'm being melodramatic, it is "only" 90" x 97"...obviously many women have made much larger quilts. But it sure took a long time to baste. And I didn't get a very good funny picture, but you get the idea. I dragged the basting table up from the basement so I could watch a movie while I did it and it took me all of Strictly Ballroom to get it done. Goodness I love that movie. Anyway, here's a picture of the main part of the quilt before I had the ginormous border:


I do like this quilt quite a lot. It hopefully will be a wedding quilt for a friend who is getting married in September. However, as has been pointed out to me already, hand quilting a 90x97 quilt is not the best summer time project. I may just have to crank up the air conditioning and quilt in daisy dukes. Ha ha.
