Pinning the Quilt

Today I cleared out my dining room and pinned the "Spanish Steps" quilt together. It barely fit in! I used my favorite wool batting.

I moved my dining room table into the kitchen. I use the old island counter top from my kitchen to machine quilt large quilts on. My husband cut out the end the same as my Plexiglas sewing table. There are little legs underneath. It works fantastically!!

Don't adjust your set, that is a pink counter top. When we moved in a couple of years ago there were pink counter tops, pink wall-to-wall carpets, pink and white linoleum!! Also the walls were painted a yellowish-brown colour that should only be seen in a new born baby's diaper!

I will start quilting tomorrow. I think I have figured out the quilt pattern.


The rabbits have been enjoying the frozen pumpkins.

Have a great day and thanks for dropping by!! ♥

I got "Scraps" in the mail yesterday and immediately searched through it for this pattern. I see she has some other shadow effect patterns in there, but I think this one is the best. I'm making plans to start one as soon as I get a couple others off my plate.

Every time I see a quilt made with the Spanish Steps pattern I keep threatening to make it. Yours is absolutely beautiful. The fabric choices you made are perfect. Whoever gets that quilt is one lucky duck!
