It’s Time to Mop My Kitchen Floor

Why is it time to mop my kitchen floor?  Simple!  Because it’s time to pin baste a certain space quilt on my kitchen floor!

2011 04 01_0289.JPG

I finished the top shortly after my last post, but am now scared to quilt it.  I have a couple random donation baby quilt tops sitting here too, so I think I’ll get them ready to baste at the same time and then quilt them first to get all my tension and haven’t-free-motion-quilted-in-months jitters figured out.

Wish me luck!

OH, I’ll give close-ups of the quilt when it’s all done.  I think I’m still going to add a little bit to the space suit — maybe draw on a flag?  And the blue tape won’t be staying of course — I just needed to hide the name written on the rocket — the baby’s mom *might* be a lurker!  ;)

  4. Beautiful quilts. Beautiful sewing projects. I also live in Austin (south) and love to sew and quilt. I sew for my grandchildren mostly.

    • Sorry for the very belated response, but thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting on my quilts!

      I admit I tend to stay in north Austin these days, but my goodness I love some of the quilts shops south of the river. And I imagine sewing for your grandchildren has to be tons of fun!

  5. [...] tops. Can’t say I’m looking forward to that, but I hope to do some tonight — the kitchen floor is mopped and ready!  I definitely don’t have enough pins for all of them, though, so I’ll have to [...]
