Basting and Basting

Yesterday afternoon I did something I've been putting off for too long. I basted this charity quilt. No, I didn't make the top. Our guild here in Auburn has us participate in the collection of charity quilts in a variety of way. We can donate a finished top or a finished quilt. We can donate fabric to be put together in kits for tops. We can take a kit and make a quilt top. Or we can quilt a prepared top as I am doing. I was given the top, the backing, the batting, and even the binding.

I've had this in my hands for several months. It's due in November. All the quilts are gathered to be donated to a local charity in December. It's time to finish this project! So this will be the next machine quilting project under my needle.

And while I was in a basting mood (and while the dining room table was still clear) I decided to baste my En Provence, or as I call it, 'Ain't No Sunshine' because I left out the yellow. I'll quilt this one after the donation quilt.

I'm not sure what I'll work on today. But I'll be inside on this rainy day. Lightening struck either our TV or our Directv box early this morning - we'll have to get that fixed or replace before the weekend (college football!) That will be a Hubby chore. 

Have a great day!


  1. So nice of you and your guild. Better get that TV fixed! We're watching Lions now and Michigan plays on Saturday! Yea FOOTBALL! Love it!---
