Waiting to be quilted...

This is the quilt I got ready to quilt yesterday.  It is probably going to be a bit before I start the quilting.  First of all, I haven't decided on the quilting design...and then there is the fact
 I am so sore and stiff through my neck and shoulders...going to try to let that ease up a little.  Roger keeps trying to think of some way I won't have to get down on the floor to do the pin basting...
maybe one of us will eventually think of something.  This way just works so good and I don't have puckers.
 *****************
A beautiful day here.  It is almost 4:00 p.m. and I just hung out a load of clothes.  And the way the humidity is so low, and the wind blowing, I think they will dry just fine.  I always throw them in the dryer for about 20 minutes anyway to soften some, and get the worst of the wrinkles out.  Not that they have that many.

I have been getting the black screen when on the internet, kind of gave me a fright, but turned the computer completely for for a minute or two and that seems to have taken care of it.  I had two or three tabs open that had tons of photos so that might have been part of the problem.  There is not much worse than computer problems...well, there is a lot worse...maybe annoying is a better word.  Keep your fingers crossed that the problem is solved. 

Anyway, think I will go run Malwarebytes just to see if it finds anything...just to be on the safe side.

That's so lovely and I hope Roger finds a solution that helps. Sweet of him to think of you like that. My old laptop is pottering along and I'm hoping it holds out for a while longer, but I do back everything up. My one piece of advice if you are not doing it already, is to back up some way because I've lost a whole bunch of photos way back and wouldn't want you to have to go through what I did. By the way, has that sweet granddaughter of yours shown an interest in quilting?

Hi Rose, I always love your blog posts.. Your quilts are always so pretty and so colorful... Sorry you are having trouble with you shoulders/neck.... That is hard to 'want' to work on something and 'can't'... Bless you, My Friend.
Hugs,
Betsy

I really like the random black framed blocks - it really makes all the scrappy wonderfulness pop. I used to borrow my neighbor's 8 foot folding table and set it up on bed risers. Still do if I want to quilt on my Bernina instead of the frame...supposeably I can baste on the frame but I haven't tried that yet.

I hope the computer is O.K. You always make such pretty quilts. It is a joy to see each of your creations!

how about a sheet of ply wood on two saw horses to make a big table. i hope the computer was a one time only thing. it is terribly annoying and very expensive

A friend of mine has a few long folding tables that she pushes together when she wants to baste a quilt.

It's a lovely quilt. I love the Bed Buddy, available on amazon. It is a microwave neck wrap that helps with neck and shoulder pain.

Can you lay it across a bed or something to pin it? It will be lovely finished. Very nice design. When it comes to the computer I get a real sinking feeling on the verge of panic when my computer does funky things....

A fine series of the quilting process including the pin basting. Sounds really hard on back, neck and knees.

The quilt sure is a pretty one. I can see it would be difficult to find a large flat space other than the floor to work on the pin basting.

Yep, not too much more annoying than computer problems...except maybe camera problems. ;)

Gorgeous! Love the black in it. This will be lovely when it is done.
