This week I decided that it's prudent that I get some things basted up to be worked on over the cooler months (even though the hubby insists on running the heat so high that I hardly know that the seasons have changed except that I am stuck INSIDE.)
So, I resurrected this quilt top that I pieced last year, I think.
I started out basting it under cover of the carport, but as the day's heat and humidity increased, I got the idea of moving the frame inside. I knew that I didn't have room to put the frame back onto it's legs, but I could stand it on it's edge.
I pieced a back for this top shortly after I made it. It was so nice to have everything ready to go when the mood struck to baste.
My biggest problem now is that everytime I see the basted quilt lying around, I have a huge impetuous urge to QUILT IT NOW !
My idea is to buy several Autumn-hued solid-colored fabrics to use as all of the different backgrounds, and then use my scraps as the tree fabrics. I hope to mix the size of the blocks also, but I'll just let it develop as I go along. For now it is a good diversion from THE BASTED TOP !
Tonight we had a real BOOMER of a thunderstorm, putting off my mowing once again, but the power outage has been corrected. I still hear rumbles out there, so I guess we're not quite through it yet.
