Every time I start to lay the backing fabric for this quilt out onto the floor to measure it, a little boy either decides to run across it or lay down on top of it.
That of course is slowing my progress to baste this quilt (along with general house chores), but I cannot help but think it's pretty adorable that they like to play in my half made quilts.
If I end up finishing some basting up this weekend, I'll host a little give away in celebration, so stay tuned. This 9 patch and a house quilt are squarely in the path of my Baste-O-Rama energy.
Has anybody ever visited the Texas Quilt Museum? I think it would be so fun to check it out. I have never made it there, but it's on my to-do list someday.
I've been looking for the perfect set of everyday plates for eating on. I love Heath (they are locally made, and have a certain heft to them that I love), but I am interested to check out the Russel Wright 1937 American Modern line from Bauer. I am curious to see if they would hold up to the punishment we put them through. White plates float my boat but scratches on them...unsightly! Maybe I'll test a couple of them.
Finally, also on my to-do list this weekend is to check out Satori Team Company (37 N. San Pedro St., San Jose) and to look for new flavors to share with my knit/quilt night girlfriends.
If you're having a long weekend like some of us in the U.S. - enjoy and put that basting needle through it's paces.
