Nog net...


... hierdie bietjie oor om te ryg, dan kan ek begin met die kwiltwerk.

Just this much left to do, before I can start quilting. 


Dis hoe ek gewoonlik my rygwerk doen: ek sit/kniel op die kussing, en ryg ry vir ry, van links na regs. My enigste toerusting is die kussing, naalde, gare, skêr en natuurlik leer vingerhoede. Soms sal ek musiek luister of 'n video speel, net vir agtergrond geluide. Werk soos 'n bom vir my. Hoe doen julle gewoonlik jul voorbereiding?

This is how I normally do my basting: I will sit/kneel on the cushion, and will baste row for row, from left to right. My only tools are the cushion, needles, thread, scissors and off course some leather thimbles. Sometimes I will play some music or a video, just for some background noise. This works like a charm for me. How do you normally do your basting?

 Regards

  1. Meestal past mijn quilt net op tafel, anders rol ik het een beetje op. Verder gebruik ik veiligheidsspelden, dat vind ik veel makkelijker.
    Succes met quilten.

  2. Not much left to do, that's great! I always dread the 'in between' stage before I can start quilting. Fortunate I have the big table to do the basting... I could never do it as you due to my knees... Don't you get pain in your knees and back?
