A new block, prairie grass, and quilt basting
This is the design for a new donated project our monthly Thursday night quilters want to make. This is the first batik fabric I've purchased - yes I love it, but there is so much standard cotton to use! It's called Eli's Wheel and is a free pattern at Moda Bake Shop.
Rocky Road to Kansas. My last Hurrah of fall - basting in the garage, where I set up the 2 tables, and put legs on legs, to keep from bending over for pinning. This job from beginning to end (assuming all is pressed) takes about 45-60 minutes, from set-up to take down. Now to get to the quilting, my favorite part, although I haven't a clue as to quilting design.
Today is lovely, but icy, snow, drizzle coming our way.
