Our Little Basting Party!

Here is the barn, basting table, quilt sandwich & me, safety pins in hand.

Next up: The very picture of a loving husband: the couple that bastes together shares Band-aids together...

Oh, and if you're interested, you can see that the blocks -- which were supposed to go in diagonals -- don't. One does; that would be the one I was using to make sure they all did (ahem!) but the rest got uppity and moved around on me. Now, I can smile about this. Then, well let's just say I wasn't smiling.

Starman working on a section of the basting. Honestly, I'm telling you -- he's such a star (all puns intended).


  1. Good to "see" you again, Magdalen, and nice to "meet" Starman!


  2. Magdalen, when I imagined "Basting in the Barn" the mental image involved a lot more hay and at least one turkey. But the quilt is BEAUTIFUL! and I'm so glad you got it done. PS: I must be a real quilt novice b/c it looks way diagonal to me. Oh well. Have a safe & wonderful trip to the UK!
