Note to self: basting a quilt takes 2 hours instead of 20 minutes with a crawling baby.
So sweet! There will be feet running across before you know it.
oh yea... basting can only be done when they're sleeping... but they are cute! :)
20 minutes? I don't I've ever done it that fast solo! I keep wondering why everyone quilts so much more than me...maybe I'm just realllllllly slowwwwwwwww. ;-)
Cutest. Disruption. Ever.
I agree... I can't do it in 20 minutes with or without a baby! You must have some speed tricks you should be sharing!
Aaaahhhh, but would you have it any other way?
I feel you, girl. This is why I wait until my three munchkins are in bed. However, maybe that's why I never get to bed early...it's prime quilting time and I can't stop.
Everything takes about 10 times longer with children in tow...but it is worth every minute.
I applaud all of you quilters with children...oh my, I don't know how you get anything done! I suppose I was fairly productive when mine were young but it was not easy. And I agree, it was totally worth every minute!
super cute! maybe tomorrow during naptime....:)
i do my basting while the kids take their nap, but that still doesn't stop the dogs from walking all over it or laying down when I turn my back. children or pets, you gotta love 'em!
How do you baste on the carpet!? I have all carpet so I take my quilts to work to baste them on the tile floor or to my neighbor's hardwoods... I feel stupid, but I would REALLY like to know an effective way to baste on carpet!
I seriously laughed my head off.
I remember when my kids were that little;) Basting was done when they were asleep;) I love that tumbler quilt...vibrant;)Happy Quilting!!
i bet this soon becomes a naptime project!!!
I miss that type of interruption! Sometimes my 6 year old will interrupt for a hug, just to let me know he is still alive :) That's when I realize it has been hours since I took a break.
Your quilt is even cuter with a baby on it!
What a great photo! Oh how I miss those days!
OMG How cute is that! I love it when the kids help. Great photo.cathy
I have a "helpful" 4 yr old. What is it about fabric that is laying out on the floor that says "run over me?" Haven't figured it out yet...
That's so funny! And so true.
I can't believe how big he is! I once had a potty- training kid gleefully sit on a newly finished quilt I spread on the floor, only to suddenly 'overflow'. The life of a mother is never dull. :)
I try to time mine with snack time in the highchair ;)
Precious moments...treasure them.
oh that's funny! I thought, from the previous post and picture, that it was a little wall hanging quilt! LOL I like it much better full size, with a baby! :)
I bet it was the best 2 hours. Great photo
He's just trying to hold it down tight for you :)Have you ever tried basting with the spray adhesive? I'm probably not telling you something you don't already know, but I baste my quilts that way, and it takes less than 10 min.
I just wanted to say that I think that quilt is ridiculously beautiful! beautiful!
