 I cannot BELIEVE I have left this project this long. Probably some of you can't remember the quilt top I assembled a million (more or less) years ago. It's a simple scrap quilt in blue, green and yellow. Anyway, I finally got out the backing and batting and made the sandwich, pinning it together to get it ready for quilting. I'm going to machine quilt it. I can't even fathom the energy I'd need to hand-quilt it...

The sheet (which looks plain white from the view) is actually an old cotton flannel sheet I found at the thrift store an age ago for like a dollar. It's white with a pattern of yellow flowers and green leaves in bunches. The batting is already on top of it in the photo below. I like blue painter's tape for getting things straight on the floor.

The boys were engrossed in "Scooby Doo" and didn't mind that I pushed the couch all the way back against the bookcase so I'd have room. 

Laying the quilt-top down before pinning...

And the sandwich is made and pinned. I began to wish I'd left my hearing aids out as I had to listen to Scooby and Shaggy while crawling around on the floor, painstakingly inserting pins. Hey, I think that's Daphne! "Mhelp, mhelp!" I think she's trying to tell us something! [Yeah, she's saying "help" you doofus...]

More photos as I hope to start sewing this afternoon.


  1. Love it, so cheerful and sunny!

  3. I love the colors! I think quilts are very impressive!

    I also love your comment about the cartoons. I do the same thing!! :)

  4. O, my! I laughed, as my children also talk to each other with "doofus":))
    Very nice quilt, I wish to make one some day, but i don't know how..
