Quilt sandwiched and a new start :)

Last Saturday my friend and I did a perfect job: we sandwiched my quilt, the old-fashioned way. We spread it out on the floor, and then crawled over it to thread it. It took all day, we only allowed us to have a break at lunch. A back breaking job, so today I feel like the Princess and the Pea, "my whole body is black and blue this morning" LOL. Every time I turned myself on the other side tonight I felt my knees and hips hurt. But it was worthwhile! We had a great day together and my quilt is sandwiched! The picture is a bit dark, but I'm the one on the left and as you can see we are almost done here. On the second picture notice we are exhausted!

As I finished the top of Baltimore Bliss I allowed myself to make a start on the beauty I showed you before, this beautiful design of Kim Mclean: My Garden. Of course I choose my own colours and I decided from the beginning to do it on black.

I finished two blocks this week.

Oh Joke, wat een grote quilt is het geworden.
Helemaal leuk dat je dit samen met Pauline hebt volbracht.
Nu komt het grote werk pas echt, want ga je de Baltimore door quilten met de Hand???????
Veel succes, hij is trouwens super de super mooi geworden!!!!
Knuffels Chrissie
