All Pinned and Ready to go!


I was off from work last week. I had planned on getting so much done but it didn't really work out that way! The weather was hot and I lost much of my motivation. However, I did manage to get 2 quilts all layered and pinned just dying to be quilted! This pattern is called Pinwheels and Posies by Beth Ferrier.  It was offered as a free BOM a few years back. I've had the top finished for quite awhile and had even bought the backing but had never gone any further. I think it's very pretty and deserves to become a finished quilt. 


This is a free pattern offered by Quiltmaker. It's called Single Scoop and the pattern can be found here. It's such a cute pattern! I had made it with the intention of donating it but it came out so cute! I have a few friends expecting babies so  I'm rather undecided right now. I used scraps except for the backing. It's amazing how much fabric I have in my stash!

I'm happy to say my daughter helped me with the pinning. It was nice to have my daughter involved with quilting. Maybe I'll convert into a quilter after all!!

  1. One beautiful and one cute. I do not enjoy the process of layering and basting, probably because I just can hardly wait to get to the quilting!

    1. I don't like layering either it has to get done! I still have to figure out how to quilt these two!

  2. Beautiful! I love the colors of both quilts..They will be both be loved and welcome. I am glad to see others are pine basting on the floor! My cousin suggested using plywood on saw horses.

    1. I always pin on the floor. I don't really enjoy it but it doesn't seem to take too long. I like getting it over with!

  3. Pinwheels and Posies is so pretty. How great it will be to get it finished. (Don't ask me when my Moondance will get done!)
    Love the ice cream quilt. Perfect for a baby boy or girl.

  4. Both projects look great. Seeing the floor basting makes me so grateful for my longarm even though I always basted on my cutting table or a folding table.

    1. I have a frame I could baste on but I prefer the floor! It's faster and I feel it comes out better. Wish I had a longarm!!
