Basting in the Basement

I finally got around to basting my gray and yellow quilt! I don't have any hard surfaces in my apartment except my tiny kitchen and tiny bathroom, so I decided to take my quilt here:


The basement of my building, where my office is also located! I felt a little silly carrying a Swiffer and all of my various supplies across the Arts Quad, but hey, it worked. It was so much easier than trying to do it on carpet! A few of my fellow grad students wandered by and were very interested in what on earth I was doing crouched in front of the pop machine. :)

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

  1. The things we do in the name of quilting ;) I think you should have enlisted some of the grad students to help you put all those pins in! In the name of research of something hehehe!

  8. This made me laugh, I spent yesterday afternoon on my hands and knees on the floor of my in-laws cellar doing exactly the same thing, though I forgot to take a photo. Your quilt looks great here!
