Trying to get this huge full quilt for my grandson sandwiched.  I even bought those clips.  Whats the trick ladies.  I am so short armed I am finding this very difficult.  Can't imagine how I am going to quilt it.

Ok, guys, I think quilt modeling is my new calling. We did an impromptu photo shoot for some marketing at Fons & Porter yesterday. Here is my shot!

Woo hoo, I got a little accomplished today. I got some FQs ironed and got a couple of blocks cut out.

When I started the Pineapple swap I had no CWR fabric so I ordered a couple of bundles and then some yardage to do the swap. There were quite a few FQs and 1/2 yd pieces that would not work for the Pineapple swap so I decided to use them with the Churn Dash block using champagne Kona as back ground. I have reds, greens, blues, browns, and pinks to use, I think it will be a very nice quilt.

I made my first block today and it is quite nice if I do say so myself. I am really struggling as I'm having a difficult time seeing (this will be resolved when they do the cataract SX on my other eye) and cannot feel to nest the seams (this I'm afraid I will have to learn to live with), but I hung in there (I did have to do a bit of frogging) and I made my first block today and it is quite nice if I do say so myself.

I also received my BlocLoc ruler yesterday and used it for the first time today. I think it will work once I get the hang of it. I did have a mishap with it today, cut my finger and I have never cut myself with a rotary cutter before. I just have to learn to lay the cutter down when I turn the block to trim.

Donna - I use the tables in the cultural hall at the church - for a large queen/king size I put 3 together - the I put the backing down on the table and clip it all the way around - I then lay the batting on it and smooth it out - I always put the top on next  - but this step can be done after you baste the backing and the batting - I do this so that I make sure my backing is big enough - - I fold back the batting to the middle - about a foot at a time - I then spray from the center out on the backing fabric - then smooth the batting over that area and move on to the next - - after you get the batting spray basted then I do the top - I lay it out and fold it in to the center again - I spray the top - and fold it out and smooth it down... I never spray the batting itself - the top or backing - but you can - 

So this is how I do it - I think I posted a tutorial somewhere with pictures on here.

I love the angel blocks.  They are going to make a gorgeous quilt.  Kudos to you for being so willing to give of your time and work.  I know that all the quilts will be much appreciated.
