He kept insisting to help me baste the quilt, and so I gave him the job of handing me the safety pins which I use to baste the 3 layers (the top, the batting, and the backing piece) together.
When I turned over the quilt to check if I had basted the layers together properly, he got even more excited and started counting the ladybugs on the backing material! LOL!
So, how many ladybugs were there on the backing material? He didn’t get any further than 100 numbers when he started to pant! LOL! I was getting worried that he was going to get another asthma attack, and made him stop.
I am so happy to see him getting excited over it as it made all my efforts working on it worth it, as before this, when I showed him the blocks in progress, he would just give a polite, “Yeah, it’s nice, mummy”, and would proceed to play with his PSP. *grin*
I can't wait for next weekend when Gill is going to teach me to hand-quilt or machine quilt it. Hmm...which one would be easier and faster to do? Any suggestions, anyone?
BTW, I bought the ladybug backing fabric, all 6 yards of it, from Joann. As Joann does not mail overseas, I had them mailed it to my SIL’s house in the US and she mailed them to me together with the other things that I ordered which I shared shipping cost with a couple of friends.
Eli, thanks for helping us out to mail the things out to us. My friends, Tini and Paul, said thank you too. We really appreciate it!
