Preparation

I'm working on a customer quilt, but it's taking a lot of preparation before the actual quilting can start. Quite apart from the usual design work and pressing, I had to plan the motifs, prepare them to trace, and then mark the quilt:


Now I'm basting it. This is where I long for a longarm. It's 86 x 110in, and an enormous basting task! I'm looking forward to the actual quilting though; I'm very happy with the semi-custom design we agreed on.
