tidying up

Each morning I am taking some quilty time-some days that means reading blogs..but lately-I have been finishing up the challenge wall hanging. Last night I picked out all the paper from the top-ugh! I told M, remind me to get rid of all those old phone books I thought would make great paper for pp'ing! I am going to invest in lightweight tracing paper hereafter. This morning's task is to sandwich and pin baste the top. I fell asleep thinking about quilting...hand or machine? I was considering gold shiny thread...but, now, maybe not...I don't want to blind folks!
So...get it basted and then...tonight dive into quilting....and a reminder- no photos until after the April 14th quilt show.

I have two words: Kabinet Wax paper! I just finished a 110"x110" quilt using this as the foundation for the strings. Easy Peasy to remove.

I've heard people recommend phone books. What was wrong with them?

Good for you for doing quilty things everyday. I try to do that as well. And especially good that you moved to finishing up things rather than just reading about others finishing up things. I have a hard time with that one.

Good luck with your quilting decisions. I am sure you will make the right ones, Cher.

It's nice to set aside time for quilting, sometimes other things get in the way. I look forward to seeing the quilt.

That is the one thing that really puts me off foundation piecing - removing all that dratted paper - if I really do have to do any I tend to stitch on vilene and leave it in living with the extra weight - can't ever see myself doing a full quilt in that method though
