Zigzag front!

Zigzag front!, originally uploaded by soja.

Hmm, I've got to learn/have more patience using Gimp (the photo editing programme) but at least this is a full picture of the front! Taken inside at school so I could use the desks to lay it out on.

I also stayed late so I could use my classroom floor to pin baste Mum's quilt, as I haven't got a big enough space at home, without trying to move a sofa or a bed. I'm not sure if I'm going to get the quilting done this weekend.

I emailed Cotton Patch for advice using their thread, and it's likely I need to use an embroidery or topstitch needle, with a bigger eye. I can't find any locally, not even a jeans/denim needle that might work, so I think I'll wait for the ones I have ordered to arrive. Think it'll save a lot of stress and frustrating if I wait.... ;-)

I love it! Good call on the desks / larger space at work. Hee.

The quilt is great, I love the colours and the pattern! I can't wait to see the one for your mom, too.

Thanks! Basting was much easier at school - bigger space and no dog/cat helpers! ;-)
