Quilts update!

We had our Tuesday quilt along today at church.  We did not have many show up today, it's a pretty busy week.
I basted my quilt today, but when I take it out tomorrow, I'll have to make sure it's done right, because I had to rush.
While I was basting I started laughing really hard because I felt so foolish crawling on the tables at church.
Do you feel silly while crawling around basting your quilts?
Here is the backing I'm using.  It is a thin fleece I won back in January with my Janome.

Siouxsie is making a postage stamp quilt using solid colors.  I taught her today how to strip piece her blocks and she finished her first 16 patch block.  Isn't it gorgeous?
Valerie and Tabitha sewed a lot of their squares together.  Since they are using scraps, I'm having them sew twosies and then sew the twosies together to make four patches.  They have to wait two weeks for our next quilt along before they can sew the 16 patch blocks.  They really like chain stitching.
Tabitha's was so long I could not get it all in the picture.

This was the first quilt-along  Ashleigh was able to make it to.  She is crocheting granny squares.  I love the colors she picked.
If I don't have to rebaste my quilt, I'm hoping to get it quilted tomorrow.
I also HAVE to sew my husband's bath robe tomorrow, which I will do first!
Have a great day ya'll!

I don't like basting, it's my least favorite part. At least you had some fun doing it. Maybe I should try it up on a table!

I love it when our Stitcher's groups has stitch ins at the church -- it's so much easier to work on big projects there than to do anything like that in the RV! Looks like y'all had a great day!! :)
