While we were chatting away I basted Twinkle Twinkle. I figured the hotel had a huge clean floor space, didn't have little cat/dog "helpers" AND I'd be entertained with the chat to pass the time. My little plan worked brilliantly. Gave the hotel staff a little giggle, too.
Annette brought along her husband's knee pads to save my poor bones on the hard lobby floor. They were FANTASTIC! I need to get a pair myself.
There was more than enough space once I (kind of) re arranged their furniture. Bold, Cindy. Bold.
In the end, I had a quilt basted and ready to go. I am currently hand quilting with perle cotton inside the stars, echo quilting 1/4 inch inside the scrappy bits. I am so completely in love with this process I don't see myself machine quilting another quilt in the near future. I am nearly done the 21 stars now (4 left!) and will then move onto the squares and diamonds between the stars. There's a plan formulating of how to tackle them, but I'll need to test it out first. That's the news ladies. Quilting away happily here in my part of the world :)
