This top has been hanging in the closet waiting to be layered and basted. I decided now is the time. It is about half basted after working for a few hours yesterday afternoon and I hope to finish basting today so I can begin basting another quilt top that is complete. That will give me 2 basted projects ready for quilting! I will hand quilt this applique quilt, but the other quilt is a scrappy patchwork....and I may try my luck at machine quilting that one.
Please excuse the mess in my sunroom. It is a small room, but nice and light to work in, so I just move thing against the walls in order to have space. I love houseplants and they seem to like this room. The big plant at the end of the quilt is now 38 years old. It was a small plant in a 6 inch pot when I got it. It has moved around the country with me. My silly Christmas cactus is just beginning to bloom. I can never get it to bloom for Christmas.
