Batik Stripe UFO progress

Remember my February UFO, the Batik Stripe?  Well, it resurfaced!  While I cannot say my sewing machine was even turned on yesterday, I did manage to at least get this one sandwiched and pinned.  The marking was done over a week ago on another too lazy to sew day.

Because I really like this quilt, I decided to go through the trouble of pinning it.  It takes longer, but I have less trouble with puckers and the quilt layers stay more square than if I use a spray baste.  Something about the smoothing out process in the spray baste gets things all awry.

Now, I just need to quilt the darn thing and call it done!

I spent most of my day driving the family around, but I did start on a project for Easter.  You just have to wait a little longer before I post about it.

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
