Basting a Quilt Top Square!!

Remember awhile ago I said I'd be sharing how I baste quilt tops to keep (make) them square?  Well, I made a great slideshow but it had a couple of glitches.  Anyway, all those little glitches have been fixed and you can now view it as a blog post over on the Gammill Quilting blog (or click the image below for a direct link).

Bonnie's Bargello

It's February, and as the Facebook "On This Day" notifier keeps reminding me means it is time for my annual cruddy cold.  I was blessed with this nastiness Friday evening, so I only managed a couple of hours of quilting over the weekend.  That was enough, the rest of my time was spent napping, consuming vast amounts of hot soup, and chugging NyQuil; repeat.

Today is Tuesday, and I'm feeling a wee bit better (enough to head up to the AQS Daytona show tomorrow), and I finished Bonnie's quilt!  My schedule is only a few days behind so it's all good (it could be worse).

So here it is (again, not the best pics):

Bonnie's Wildflowers Quilt

I just finished teaching back-to-back so I haven't quilted in a while. A long while, like a month. That's a long time for me!  Life has returned to normal (at least for a few weeks) and I'm trying to catch-up on client work.

Here is Bonnie's Wildflower quilt (pattern by Smith Street designs):

Sorry about the awful pics. The lighting wasn't the greatest and my studio is a disaster.
