Quilty Things!

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!!

    We are glad that you told us that those were quilt clips because we never would have guessed. We can’t wait to see the progress that you are making, Miss Susie!
