The pinning of the New York Beauty is finished! I believe in using many many pins as you can see here.
In fact, if I had more I would have probably used them, but I used every pin I own. I don't want the quilt top or the backing to shift while I maneuver this baby under my little domestic sewing machine. I still haven't come up with a design that I want to quilt in a few sections, but I need to get going on this project. I will be using a product called Golden Threads Quilting Paper because many of the larger areas are too dark for me to trace the design on with a wash out marker - even with the use of a light box. Since this is the case, there is no need for me to wait before I do some stitching in the ditch to stabilize the quilt. Now, if you aren't a quilter and you are reading this you are going to be scratching your head saying, "What in the world is she talking about? Golden Threads quilting Paper?" Just wait...I will show you this in another future post. Until then, I had better get going. There are more blogs to read that I need to catch up with let along start maching quilting this beauty!
