On Tuesday I was able to use some comp time - but I stayed at work thinking I could pin baste some quilts.
Talk about cutting it close with this one - it is this close on both of the long edges of this quilt:
But the back is all one piece. I think it will work.
And then I brought this one, which has been in top done only stage since last August or so. This one is going to my Mom:
The only problem is I never pieced the back. I washed it, dried it and ironed it, but never pieced it (what you are seeing is 2 layers of backing and the quilt top folded in half). So I wasn't able to get as much done as I thought I was going to. Oh well.....there is always another day! Guess that will teach me to check before loading everything up to bring down here.
Speaking of basting - does anyone use the sprays to baste with rather than pins? How do they hold up? Does the quilt shift? Does it gunk up your needles. I have a rather annoying problem with running over safety pins, but hate to mess up my machine......
