W.i.P Wednesday: Up Too Late!

We always seem to be on the go this summer so pretty much the only time I get to sew is once the kids go to bed which means there have been a lot of late nights around here.  The good thing is the kids know they can watch TV and play on the computer as long as I'm asleep so they have an incentive to play quietly and let me sleep in: )

After whining to everyone and their cousins about how much I hate basting I finally got over myself and just did it.   Why I finally decided to do it when it was 90° here I just don't know.  It really didn't take that long but I was a hot, sweaty mess!  Unfortunately I ran out of safety pins.  After digging around in my studio for some more I realized they were all stuck in UFOs.  I dragged this Lil' Twister out of the pile and decided it was time to start quilting it.

The quilting is the Paisley design from the fabulous Free-Motion Quilting with Angela Walters.  This book is amazing, definitely one I'll be using frequently!!!  I'm trying to keep my copy pretty so I can have it signed when Angela comes to visit the BMQG in September but I can't stop looking at it.  I may have to buy another copy;-)  Hopefully I won't have to stay up too many nights to finish this so I can reclaim all those pins and get my quilt off the living room floor before little feet start walking on it!
