Yesterday was deemed to be the day of quilting the giant t-shirt quilt (although I somehow managed to forget to actually tell Bec about this particular part of my plan before she arrived)....
The first step was the congregation of about a million safety pins.... the big wooden bench made this much easier (thank god).
Then the quilting began (notice how I'm not actually doing anything much other than snapping photos?)
Quilting is hungry work, so it was time for a homemade pita bread pizza break!
There was also cake.... there has to be cake (and the host always gets to keep the leftover cake - but that might just be a rule that is in place when I'm the host).
We decided to put the child to work....
....and reminisced about Bea from Prisoner (please note that it's not actually turned on).
There was a looooooot of quilting, before it was finally time to start on the binding.
Mmm lovely binding.
We finally finished the entire quilt just after dinner time thank goodness! I would never have been able to finish this without the wonderful help from Brianna and Bec. I'm indebted to you two ladies! I learned a lot about quilting today and had lots of fun too.
I don't have any photos of the finished quilt just yet, so I thought I'd share the out-takes instead - enjoy!
