Quilt Sandwich

I have basted my quilt top using safety pins to my  batting and backing, creating the sandwich of fabrics and it is now ready for quilting. 

Since I did not have a table big enough to hold my quilt I laid it out on the basement floor which has a layer of exercise rubber matting.  I also placed plastic drop cloth painters used over the floor to prevent getting my fabric dirty.

The basement floor was perfect, because I was able to lay out my backing fabric on the plastic, I skipped taping with masking tape, because of the rubber matting on the floor, I was able to pin the backing fabric directly to the rubber matting and kept it taut using straight pins.  Once I had pinned my batting and quilt top to the back fabric with safety pins, I was able to remove the plastic quite easily if it was caught by the pins.

Adventures First Half of 2017

Early March 2017

My love for travel, history and exploring started with books, my natural curiosity did the rest.

NYC tour





Empire state building.






The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum




When in NYC shopping is not far from my mind, so I visited LV and got myself a present.




Later in March my BFF and I dance to Uncle Charlie in concert.





Early July 2017

Off to the races I went on a tour of Belmont Park Race Track, the place is huge and makes me wonder what it is like when they have the Belmont Stakes. There were plenty of people having picnics at the park, others there for the races.
