This picture is from Thursday when I brought the quilt top, some backing fabric and a pack of king size cotton batting to my parent's house. With some help from my sister I cleared off the living room floor and layered and basted the quilt sandwich. Yesterday I bought some quilting gloves and today I have started quilting it with a gorgeous shiny army green thread my dear friend Rose got me for Xmas:
Quilting from the top
Quilting from the back
As it is quite heavy I will only be able to do a small section at a time (that arm! -and the neck and shoulders needs looking after).
But if you don't hear from me for a while, Bernie and I are quilting!!!!
Sincerely, Anne Ida
