7 days....

Last night, I was pretty productive. I got backings pieced for 3 more quilts and I ran a basting line around the outside of 4 quilts for quilting. Jen does this to give a bit of stabilization to the quilt edges so that there is not a lot of stretching while it's on the frame. This is the first time that I am trying it so that I can be the judge. :)

I also got this quilt loaded onto Lenny and it's ready for quilting tonight! I picked the thread and everything.

Two comments - first, I also do the machine basting around the edge. It really does make a difference. Second, next year I am DEFINITELY going to the retreat!!

Dang, you JUST tried that NOW?? How did it work out for you? I won't let a quilt on my frame without it!
