Backing fabric and perle #8 quilting threads have arrived. I don't have a table large enough to pin a quilt easily so I have to sit on the floor and on top of the quilt to pin. And since I don't have air conditioning (really!) and since it's been over 90 degrees lately and since I'm going to be hand quilting this one and have it on my lap - I think I will be "sitting on it" for quite some time. My goal is to have it completed by September 1.
