I'm ready to quilt my 10 Little Things Baby Quilt...but first it needs to be taped down and pinned.
I don't know about anyone else, but seriously, taping my quilt to the floor and then crawling around on my knees and elbows to pin is not my favorite thing to do!
But that's what needs to happen if I'm ever going to get anything finished.
At least, until I can convince my husband that me getting a longarm would be a good idea!
And my favorite part is the HUGE ball of sharp, open pins that I get to manhandle!
I just hold that big mass of pins over my quilt and shake the loose ones off. My kids think this is really cool.
I haven't been able to find a better system to keep my pins more separated and easier to get to! I put them back in my little tin opened because it saves time while I'm quilting, and then again when I'm pinning them into a new quilt.
Or does it??
Does anyone have a better method of storing and retrieving pins?
I think maybe I got a little carried away with my pinning! There's lots of intersections with these HST's, and I don't want anything to move around!
I'm still trying to decide how to quilt this. Something circle-y? I'm leaning towards some straight-lines...but I can't decide if I want to follow the graduating diamonds outwards, or maybe something diagonal through the diamond rows. Any ideas?
