Hi friend!
Beautiful day!
I crawled around in the floor and pined 3/4ths of their quilt.
I am so sore now i will have to wait until my legs will move to finish..
That scrap would only make 4 pin wheels so i got another scrap
and made another two.
Now i am looking for something to make stars around each one!
Something that will go with all three.
With a border it would make a great lap quilt for some one!
Have a great sewing day friends!
Quilt happy

The quilt's looking great. Ugh - I remember the pain of pin-basting: knees and fingers! That's one of the great things about long arm quilting - no pin-basting! I don't miss it since I started renting a long arm to finish my quilts.

Barbara, do you have a table you could use for pinning? I only use a small table at the moment and just let the quilt drop off each side, pin the table top area (I use bulldog clips to hold the sides in place) and then move the quilt around until all the top is done. Much easier than the floor. I don't get any tucks on the back and my own back and legs don't go into spasm either!

I can't imagine sandwiching a quilt on the floor. My knees would kill me! Those pinwheels look like fun!
