Back in the Saddle: Quilt Basting!

Firstly, thanks to all of you for your prayers and support and kind comments - they meant so much! The funeral for hubby's father was Friday morning and was CROWDED. This man had touched so many people during his life - job well done, Clyde!

We will miss him, BUT I have my hubby back home! He's got a bit of a cold now, but we thoroughly enjoyed spending yesterday watching football together.  We grilled out chicken last night - things are slowly getting back to normal.

In the afternoon I basted this quilt sandwich - I do this on the dining room table close to the football game and hubby!

I plan to quilt this with my Bernina using rulers. I have gotten more of them! My LQS (Stitch Therapy) got them for me. I now have the second set along with the feather set. Yes, you can quilt feathers with rulers! And it's not as hard as you might think! I haven't decided if I'll quilt feathers on this quilt, but I do need to practice, so maybe so...


  1. Farewell, Clyde. Pray for us now that you are in Heaven. I have a set of rulers, and one is a feather - with three quilts to quilt, maybe I should finally try it. The video makes it look so easy.

  2. I like the quilt, and it's open to anything you decide to practice. It will all look good!
