Basting - again

The kitchen island is working perfectly for basting. It's just the right working height, so I've made good progress today.  There's no big hurry, but I want to have it done before Wednesday when my grandson comes here after school.  The kitchen tv is his while he's here; he can watch his shows or hook up his game cube and be right next to all of the drinks and snacks.  Anyway, here's my quilt all set up for basting, and about a third completed.











I think I'm done on it for today, though.  I have just a smidgen of work left to complete my Summer Mini Quilt, and I would like to get it done and in the mail on Tuesday.  That will make two swap obligations out of the way this week.  Then I'll only have one more September deadline to meet.  So far so good.

I can't wait to see it after you've finished quilting it. Nice job using your kitchen island for making your quilt sandwich.
