A Little Basting Challenge

A little Basting Challenge

Since I was going to baste the star quilt I thought I might as well make it worth it to dig out all that stuff. So I'm challenging myself to use up all the batting I have stuffed away here and there. Yes even all those pieces. I hope to do at least 2 a day. I have pieces of time through out the day and will have to push to keep making progress on the basting. So yesterday I got 2 done. The Dresden plate and the snails tail quilt. The Snails tail quilt was started at least 10 years ago and I've probably had the top done about 5 years. It's an oldie. Today so far I have one done the green one with the crazy strip sashing. I get these out after so long I can't believe how nice they are why haven't I finished these up. I report agine when I have a few more done.

You have the most mavelous and varied quilts. I loved your February UFO. It came together perfectly with the red and gold. The on point setting elevated the lovely stars to elegance. Your snails trail is peaceful and iteresting; the green quilt fun and the star quilt pleasingly old fashioned.
