A Minor Setback On The Deadline Quilting Front

It’s 4:18 a.m. Mistakes were made. What can I say? I will resume work after I get some sleep. The quilting is about halfway done on the third of five quilt panels. I can do this. (If you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about, check out my other posts below.)

Hi, Just wanted to comment to say how much I enjoy your podcasts. I have just sent my third and final child off to start school and it great to come back to the house for some peace. i sit here each morning listening to a podcast while sewing. Just really enjoying them, listening to talented creative women. thanks
Hope the quilting goes well

Oy!
I have my fingers crossed for you!
Your quilt is looking amazing and even though it’s a pain right now, this is a learning experience and you will be proud for helping a good cause. You’re awesome!

Good luck with the quilting. Anxious to see how they look when they are done. have you ever tried quilt basting spray. It works great and is another option to use instead of basting with pins. Then you can spray baste the backing to the batting and spray baste the batting to the front.

Thanks for posting words of encouragement. It’s helping. : )

Traci, I have not used basting spray, but know it’s worked well for many quilters. I went with the Fusi-Boo option because it reduced the chances of me getting basting residue all over my floor. I’m working tired, so I have to do what I can to head possible debacles off at the pass. Under normal, non-deadline situations, I’d be totally up for trying it.
