Yesterday was the day. Small wonder after all the stress. Stress plus daily pain medication equals a big fat stomach ache. (of course eating the M&M's hidden in my fabric stash did not count at all). After seeing my mother, I crawled home to bed only to find someone else beat me there. My husband had pulled his back again and was in bed with muscle relaxers...Good Lord....what a way to spend a beautiful Saturday, the two of us out for the count. There is nothing like a good rest when you know you are sick and cannot do anything else. Today is a new day..aren't we lucky when a brand new day comes along. So out came the flanne quilt panels that my friends bought me at the Springs Creative sale. And out came those wonderful flannels I bought on Black Friday at JoAnn's fabric store. You can buy some of these panels at Mary Jo's or Hobby Lobby, but the price was right at Springs.
I do not really like working with flannel, but I like the feel for children. Usually I use iron on batting to stabilize them. This time I did something different. This quilt basting spray sat unused on my shelf. With windows open on this glorious day, I was able to spray baste the flannel top to the batting and then the flannel bottom with no trouble at all. I like this better than the iron on batting..easier and less clutter. I pinned too, just to be sure. Now I have about 5 quilts basted, ready to quilt, relaxing my mind!
