Quilt Basting

Rain storms have finally started arriving in California, we've had 3 storms in the last few days and another one is expected on Monday. Although this is good news we need a lot more. The morning news team gave a scary illustration, we've received about a coffee cup full when we need a 5 gallon bucket full. I'm praying the storms keep coming.

My BFF hurt her back a month ago, this has put a crimp in her quilting plans. R makes quilts for Project Linus and enjoys hand quilting her quilts. Since her back injury her DH has been monitoring her actions closely. Apparently basting her quilts on the floor is not allowed so here is what she came up with (in her words).

Step 1: sandwich backing, batting and quilt top on flat surface
Step 2: weigh down prepared quilt with a dog so the layers don't shift while basting
Step 3: find a willing helper to do the actual basting

Now that's what I call teamwork.

I'm going to enjoy the Olympics this weekend.

Stay safe and warm. Ronda
