Broke Back MareBare!!

Oh Lordie it has been so long since I've gotten down on the floor to bat a quilt......and it HURT!!!  and to add insult to injury....I pieced the batting (not shown) to conserve on batting material and eliminate excess pieces of batting that has been taking up that meant I slip stitched all those bits of batting to keep it all held together while it's being quilted.  Around 12 hours later....I felt like someone had take a bat to my poor old back!!!  and hips!!! and knees!!! and neck!!!  Well, that job is done and now all I have to do is to quilt the darned thing!!!

¡Dios Mio!  ¡Ha sido tanto tiempo desde que he bajado al suelo a batear un quilt ...... y me dolió! y para colmo de males .... monté el bateo (no se muestra) para conservar el material de bateo y eliminar el exceso de piezas de bateo que ha sido ocupando espacio ...... así que quise decir he costurado todos esos trositos de bateo para mantener todo mantiene unida mientras se está acolchada. Alrededor de 12 horas más tarde .... me sentí como si alguien tenía tome un bate a mi pobre espalda !!! y las caderas !!! y rodillas !!! y el cuello !!! Bueno, ese trabajo está hecho y ahora todo lo que tengo que hacer es acolchar la maldita cosa !!!


  1. Sometimes quilting can be physically draining! I have pieced backing once but I don't think I will ever do it again! ;). Anyway your blue and yellow quilt is beautiful - I like the mix of fabrics!

  2. This must go in that category...what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger, or makes the project last a little longer because you can't move the next day. Love the quilt.
