The batting I ordered from Hancoc's arrived today. Jippi!!! After dinner I started basting the double 4 patch quilt, and marking it. What a job! Don't know how many hours I did spend on that, but this quilt is not just a small one, so... I ordered one batting in cotton, and one poly. Just had to try the poly, since it's a bit more "puffy".
Finally I got to start quilting it. It's three hours since midnight, so I better jump to bed, and continue tomorrow. I'm so happy to finally get to this point. This is actually the first big quilt I've got so far with. I've finished a lot of quilt tops, but haven't got to the basting and quilting part with any of them. But it's time consuming with a domestic sewing machine, so I get to test my patience :o) LOL...Hubby bought me some more yarn today, since I'm also busy knitting some more mittens. I really love to do these, because they don't take days to finish. It's a bit fun to do stuff that is done in a day or two also, between the quilting stuff, wich sometimes takes weeks.As you can tell from the photo, I've already started on some red ;o)
I'm off to bed, so good night:o)
