Just wanted to post a few pictures of what I've completed for my mission quilt thus far.
Here's my backing, laid out on my kitchen floor (It was the best place I could find!):
I tried to take pictures of the next part of the process..
But as you can see...
It's really hard to take pictures of yourself from above!
I don't think this is the proper technique, but essentially I basted the middle and had to lay on top of the quilt to reach either end. There's two ways into my kitchen but I wouldn't be able to get around it without climbing on my counter so....improvisation. I hope it doesn't mess it up too badly...
Here's my quilt sandwich, all basted together:
The cactus fabric is weird, yes...I'll just claim to have been going for a 'bold' look :)
I've already started machine quilting, but I don't have pictures of that yet. It's slow going! I think I may simplify the design a little; let's see how I do before the deadline next week.
Do you have any strange techniques to 'get the job done'? Let me know in the comments!
