I can’t put it off any longer.
What? (you may well ask!)
The worst job in making a quilt. Basting it all together. I really truly hate it. I get cricks in my back and my neck, my knees hurt and almost invariably, by the time I get through and turn the package over there will be some horrible little puckers somewhere. Usually right in the very middle. Urgh.
I hate it, but there is absolutely no getting away from it.
I’ve never felt happy with pinning and this quilt is far to big to spray baste (can you imagine the pickle I’d get myself in if I tried to do that ), so there’s nothing for it but to grovel around on the floor with my tacking thread.
I tend to do twenty minutes or so and then have a break to stretch out the back-ache.
Slowly, but surely I will get there. If not today, then hopefully tomorrow.
And then I get to do the real fun stuff! I LOVE machine quilting. Yum!
Have a great day! (Here it is so dark and grotty you wouldn’t believe it – hence the very dark photo!!)
