My creative space.

Confession time.    I finished my first ever quilt top using fabric scraps and discount fat quarters over a year ago, and it's never been quilted or completed, so I am putting my foot down and getting it done.  The back, wadding and quilt top have been sitting in the cupboard and now they're out for good.  No turning back.  I mean it. 

I have no good hard surfaces in my house so I'm using this method to hand baste at my dining table, with a huge cutting mat underneath.  It's working brilliantly so far and very therapeutic.  Just like hand stitiching and embroidery is.  Does anyone else use it?  Hate it?  I need advice here, because I'm no quilter, and I'm teaching myself.



Hope you're enjoying this weeks creative spaces!
