I hung my finished baby quilt on the clothes line for the photo. I will now be able to give it to the baby's Dad to take home to his wife tomorrow. ( along with the apron I made some time ago for the 8 year old big sister. ) It measures 40" x 58", so is ample for a cot . That's all my current gifts to make complete!
I used my large kitchen bench to do the pin basting. Kinder on the knees.
I use masking tape the hold the backing secured to the bench then lay the batting and top over it before pin basting. I then turn it and smooth it and adjust any pins that are causing wrinkles - and keep doing that till I'm satisfied . I am glad to say I got it simply quilted with out a wrinkle .
I used the same fabric as the backing for the binding.
While at the clothes line with the camera I took these garden pictures.
My little Meyer lemon that is in a flower bed is really happy.
A lone little brick coloured velvet face peered up from this pansy plant. I wish they would clump up more.
The first anemone blanda, appeared in the hyacinth bowl - I had forgotten I had popped the bulbs in there.
And these yellow daffodils looked bright on a dull Winter day - I think rain is very near.
