I worked away at the quilting over the weekend. It's fun to use a variety of threads in the work.

A Beast of a Beauty
Work on the New York Beauty is in the final hours, and progress has been good. Friday morning I pieced the backing and gave the top the final pressing. That's where the fun ends and the chore begins...Basting the quilt took the better part of the day (including a trip out for another 100 safety pins. They seem to keep disappearing...?) In my mind, quilt basting is one of those miserable topics suitable for a country and western song...right up there with your dog dying and your partner leaving. It's a relief when it's finished...
