More basting, some quilting…………….

I started basting this quilt yesterday.  It will take a couple days because I don’t stick with it for more than an hour at a time.

I started quilting this 42″ square wallhanging.  I am quilting 1/4″ on each side of the seam and the strips are 1″ wide so it ends up as rows 1/2″ apart.  I’m doing all of the light strips first and then I’ll come back and do the colors. 

This is the time of year when the basement is cold.  When it gets up to 60 outside late in the day the heat doesn’t come on and it gets too cold to work down there.  In the mornings I pop the heat up to take the chill off so that is the best time to work down there.

  1. Your foot of the machine looks like a walking foot, but you often talk about longarm quilting. Is this similar to quilting with a walking foot on a sewing machine?

  2. I need to baste a top for quilting too. Perhaps after this coming week when we are expecting visitors, I can set up my table and get one done.
