|The picnic quilt, a little stiff because it hasn't been washed yet and because of the dense quilting.|
Sorting through the UFO's can be a little overwhelming at times. The cause for my collection of not-yet-quilted tops is as simple as I don't like to baste. I think I may have mentioned this before. This Jelly Roll Race quilt is an example. It was an experiment of sorts and quilting it was really not a priority. Actually, I have done little quilting on the long arm for several months. So, to retrain my hand-eye coordination this one was next in the queue. I layered it and basted it using the "skewer method" as mentioned in a prior post. It works very well for me.

- The skewer method of basting worked very well for me, not one wrinkle or pucker, I am sooooo impressed. Now I did secure the basting with 1000 pins. I am a pinner.
- Amelie Scott video-skewer basting, give it a look if you haven't already.
- I rounded the corners on this one. I sort of like that these days.
- I may get a bit more quilting done.
That's All Folks!
