So I ordered the calendar over a month ago. Boy, it took an entire month and some to reached me. I bet they used the super slow snail mail.(My hubby said they used the little boat with the little motor to shipped it here. *LOL*)
Anyway I started making this quilt yesterday.
Kathie's original quilt is 66-7/8" x 81-1/2" but mine will be a doll size quilt. I haven't decided how small this quilt will be yet and yes I'm going to be piecing it by hand again. :-)
I also finished basthing my Wonky hearts quilt last night.
This picture shows my "basthing kit". Why I use a spoon?
Well, I saw one of Japan's well-known quilter name Yoko Saitou using a spoon for basting. She was using a meguering spoon like the ones that come with baby formula.
I tried it before but that spoon is sort of hard and has no spring.
Then one day, I was eating ice cream with a plastic spoon and just thought "Hey, I always have plastic spoon .... Why not use them for basting!"
I was right, this spoon is better than the one for baby formula and I don't have to worry if I brake it. I have tons of left over plastic spoons from the family camping trips.
FYI, I like the Dixi's. *LOL*
