I ended up pin basting on the floor instead of the quilting frame. My fabric was pressed and I laid it out on the floor to make sure it was the right size – it was – I got the batting out and needed to cut and baste! seeing as it was all on the floor anyhow I just got to work and pin basted it in the afternoon yesterday – now it is out of the way and I can get started putting The Postage Stamp quilt on the quilting frame today.
Hopscotch in progress – at this point I had it half pinned. It only took a couple hours – I did half and took a long break and did other things then came back to it and got it finished before I needed to get started making supper – yes the back is sore but I am so used to doing it this way that it really doesn’t take me that long and it is always up off the floor by the end of the day. I will be machine quilting this one on my Juki while the hand quilting frame will be occupied with the Postage Stamp quilt. Do not expect to see fast results!!!
And here is The Final Frontier ready for squaring up and get the biding ready – I will get to that later this week.
As you can see I didn’t put in a whole lot of quilting but enough to have it quilted! I’ll show more on this one after I get the binding done.
And the sewing room looks so bare and messy without a quilt on the frame doesn’t’ it.
A few more mini hexies done over the last week. I place the tape measure by them so you can see how many one has to do to get a large (or even small) quilt. I am linking to Em’s Scrapbag today and Cooking Up Quilts MCM#47 and Love Laugh Quilt.
With these two ingredients for a base and toss in 5 medium potatoes, sliced, one onion chopped and a pound of hamburger browned – mix all in a large bowl until well mixed, pour into a baking dish sprayed with Pam Spray – I used a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish.
Bake for 45 minutes at 375 in the convection oven (regular oven – a guess here – 400 degrees at one hour?) and you have supper – just add a veggie of your choice or two as sides and you are ready for a easy meal. I am just calling this Ranch Potato Bake! I made it up – it is a keeper, we will have it again.
