I haven't said much lately about this quilt... mostly because I haven't been doing anything with it.
But last weekend, I finally laid it out to hand baste it. I was too lazy to change the lens on my camera when I took this photos, so let's call them "arty," shall we?
(You already know what it looks like anyway, right?)
It mostly fit on the dining room table, so that's what I used. Hand basting is incredibly time consuming -- it took me about 5 hours. Wow.
(See the lovely afternoon sun? Arty!)
Now I'm ready to start the quilting! I'll post some photos along the way, as that will be something I'm working on for awhile.
After the quilting is done, I still have to do the binding. I'd like to finish by Christmas of this year. Wish me luck!
