BOM 2011

Better late than never.

I have been watching Cindy Needham's Craftsy lesson and have almost got my BOM from 2011 all pin basted..
Photos follow in stages.

Cindy was with me all the way :) 
You can see the screws my DH put into my table a la Cindy ..and one in the centre too...my lines are drawn and my quilt backing  was divided and is now half on the table

Lots of backing on the floor, but I did as was taught :)

Backing centred clamped and firm, 
batting draped over and smoothed

Half the top was centred quartered and halved

Next side smoothed ready to pin ... and ....
That's what I am doing today.

Cindy's Craftsy lesson is really great.  Now I am up to the thread chapter, but I want to get the quilt basted first.

Have a great day.

That's a big quilt to baste. :) I'm a pinner, too. Looks like some superb movie time for you.
