Making a Sandwich

Before the new pup came on board, I had the good sense to lay Son's quilt out all over the living room floor and get it pin basted.

It was quite a job. The Mister had to be brought in to help tape the backing to the floor. I am so glad I bought the one piece backing that Connecting Threads sells. It saved a lot of work and will make machine quilting it so much easier. I even used spray adhesive on the batting to hold it in place. I'm not take any chances.

It took a long time to get all those pins in but now it is nice a secure and waiting patiently for some doodads to arrive from Amazon to help get the job done a little easier. At least I hope so.

I am taking this Craftsy class and I discovered that I needed some extra thingamabobs to help my machine do a better job of sliding everything around while maintaining the right tension with the bobbin. Or something like that. We'll just have to see.


  1. Taping the backing to the floor???? That's briliiant! I'm so doing that next time I make a quilt!
