On Friday night, I had the house to myself so I cleared as big a space as I could and pin basted the #behemoth. I didn't use my basting spray. It seems to leave a tackiness everywhere just not on the quilt. Sometimes the spray is too quick acting. Everything all sticks together before I get my wrinkles smoothed out. I am happy enough with how it has basted. I have used every safety pin in the house. If I can, I will buy some more to make it as stable as possible.

I have also, this week, finished piecing the shimmer snowflake quilt in Yvonne's quilt a long. Those photos are for another day.
No stash in unfortunately. We were in London last week with friends. A whistle stop tour of "our" London, the Natural History Museum, The Victoria and Albert Museum and the Revolution exhibition (brilliant). Camden Market, great for vinyl and male bonding, Chelsea Physic Garden, the Garrick Theatre to see Kenneth Branagh in The Entertainer, but no fabric buying. I had intended to go top up my Liberty fix in Shaukat, but didn't make it during opening hours. Peeked in the window when it was shut though. Cheap shopping.
