After a lot of years it was time for a 'new bed'. We bought a second hand pinewood bed and thanks to my DH it looks like a new one. (He sawed off and added some wood. He painted the bed in a nice 30's yellow color)
The only problem is that this bed is bigger as the other one.
It means that my quilts don't fit anymore.
I made this top and backing in 2008. I still love it and it is perfect for my new bed.
So time to baste it.
2008 is a long time ago....
When I layered the top I found out that the backing and batting were too small. (ooh and I just cut the batting down from a kingsize....)
Oops, what to do.
1) Buy a new king size batting and enlarge the backing.
2) Listen to Gwen Marston's --my idol--wise words: 'If it is too big cut it off'.
I cut it off.
It's time to baste :-)
