Back to school, back to work and back to quilting ... we had a very quiet weekend with only the walk for entertainment, and I managed to finally get some time at the sewing machine. I've added on sufficient borders to this medallion to make it king size, so I spent an hour or two pinning up. It's looking good although very traditional! I don't think I'll be able to show this one at modern quilters night, I'm already marginal because of my deep commitment to scraps.
Pin basting is still my least favourite part of the whole process. I have accepted there is no way to make it go any faster so I do a quarter, wander off and stretch and have a coffee, then go back and do another quarter ... all the time keeping an eye out for cats and kids. And now a new threat - kids with rabbit poo on their shoes! Yes, we have rabbits from a school friend who is moving house. So we inherited the hutch and food and straw which has made it all very easy.
They are adorable fat lop ears; five years old and used to being handled, so very cuddly and not too nervous. For a rabbit that is.
