With a little help ....

I've said it many times but I love the way this crafting community helps each other out.

I had the opportunity a couple of weeks ago to help out my mate Mary who has been so very good to me before!

Mary and her friend (a newbie crafter) are making a quilt for a mutual friend's wedding gift. It is HUUUUGE!!!! Constructed as a massive quarter log cabin block.

Mary's quilt - front
The quilt is so huge I couldn't get the whole thing in shot!

These 2 friends are completely nuts ... in as much as they have decided to hand-quilt this big monster quilt so, of course, it needed basting!!!

That's where I came in ....

The back is also pieced and possibly even lovelier than the 'front'.

A truly reversible quilt!!

Meanwhile ... while all the basting action was happening on my dining room floor ....


 
Too sweet!!
Good luck with the quilting you two nutters!

I've always wanted to do a giant log cabin. They have used lovely fabrics.

Don't mind at all being called a nutter, you certainly aren't the first ;) Thanks again for your invaluable help.
