My creative space



I am joining in with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

This week there's been some quilting happening in my creative space. The quilt top that has been languishing for so long - orphaned from batting and backing - was basted for me by some very kind mates.



I'm not much good with crawling around on the floor and less so with following rules. So when I heard just how many pins I needed to affix into said quilt, naughty thoughts of shortcuts entered my head. Thankfully I was saved from myself.

For now that is. Wait til I show you my quilting ...

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space today (or to join in), head over here.

  7. Pins and crawling around on the floor is what made me embrace the commercial machine quilter! I need to get some curved pins like you have though - I'm old-school and always struggle with the normal pins. Very ouchy.

    Love the quilt! Enjoy the quilting.

  8. I am glad they saved it - it is lovely.I hate the basting part - drives me insane and I am always trying to do it with as few pins as possible.
