|my living room|
I am one lucky quilter.
This expanse of empty floor space in our living room is large enough to baste a king size quilt. So it's not surprising that whenever a member of my quilt guild has a quilt top to baste, everyone gathers here.
The latest project was last week, when Jean came with a quilt top that she had been working on for awhile, and was finally ready for basting.
It's not a bed size quilt. Jean wasn't sure of the measurements, but I'd guess about 50 x 65" or so.
She used bamboo batting, which I hadn't seen before. It's lovely, soft and smooth, but I was surprised at how heavy the quilt felt when we picked it up off the floor-- something to consider when comparing battings.
Since it's going to be hand quilted (!), it was thread basted, not pin basted like I usually do.
I can't wait to see the finished quilt!
