Quilty Things!

DSC05135

I have been ordering a few things which are going to help me quilt the Boys big quilts.  These will be the biggest quilts I have done so far and know it is going to be a challenge.  The above, as I am sure you will know, are quilt clips to hold the big quilts rolled up whilst you are working on a piece.  When I have done the smaller ones I have them neatly rolled and then they just slowly undo, so I thought I would give these a go!

Here is the spray baste which I am also going to give a go!  Reading around Blogland you find quilters who are all for spray basting and then those which will not touch it with a barge pole!  But I always believe in trying something once (within reason of course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Whilst looking round Blogland at spray basting quilts I found a brilliant idea and I managed to find the thing I needed on sale!!!!  So big score.  Can you guess what it is going to be?

I also ordered the batting for the Boys quilts and here it is.

This is the backing for Youngest’s quilt!  He can’t wait!!!!!

I managed to get a lot of jobs done today and my work, so I may be able to get some quilting done tomorrow, although I am going to have to enlist the help of DH with the quilts as they are so big!!!

I hope your Friday is going well and we made it to the Weekend!!!!! Yeah.

Hugs, Susie x

PS  I may take my machine and all the quilts up to Eldest’s room and use his desk, but shush don’t tell him!!!!!!!

    Having a longarm, I wouldn’t have a clue how to wrestle a big quilt in my little sewing machine! I do love the 505 spray glue…just know that it will leak out of the cans over time. I lost 6 cans of it. Expensive lesson, that’s for sure. I can’t wait to see the quilts when you are finished!!
