Half of a nightmare

The 'nightmare' that is machine quilting a big quilt, consists of two parts: basting and quilting.

Half is done this weekend, the basting. My fingers are sore, my back and knees hurts, but it is done!

I will be testing quilting-in-the-ditch method this time. Never done that before, but it is hard to get a hexagon quilt quilted well. They are usually hand quilted, but if I do that, it will never get done.

We shall see:) at the moment it will be resting while I finish a gift I am bringing with me on my upcoming trip to the US. Soooo looking forward to that.

I've always thought basting is the worst parting of quilting. lol! Congrats on having that chore done -- looks great! That's great that you will have a fun trip soon too!
