is on the basting table, and i'm in the process of using basting pins
(specially curved to catch all 3 layers of fabric).
thank you deb, for encouraging me to try this method.
i thought it was too nasty for my arthritic paws.
but it's turning out to be ok.
i like it better than dreary needle and thread basting.
the fabric came via a very clever marketing idea,
they sell stacks of 10"x 10" squares.
42 cute different fabrics to a stack,
all from one collection.
this one is called "wonderland".
so you know they all "go together".
a little off from the original idea of patchwork,
that is, using bits from here and there.
(oh well, as long as it was just a "special treat").
some folks cut the 10" squares into smaller pieces
and work with them that way.
but using the squares as is
was a quick and easy quilt top to put together.
gretta and i considered two other fabric options
before this one really "sang" to us.
i hope to be quilting tomorrow morning...
