An etegami I sent to my friend on this beautiful last day of summer.

I have quite the collection of safety pins for pinning quilts together.  I use brass because I've heard that the silver ones can leave black marks on your fabric, especially if left in too long.

I noticed while pinning yesterday, that there seemed to be quite a few silver pins in my collection.  So, I took them out.  I also noticed that a few of the brass ones had turned a bit dark, so I culled them out, too.

Finally got around to pinning together the three layers of the Lexington quilt today.

The back taped to the floor with the batting on top.

The batting is smoothed over the back and the top is piled on top

The quilt top smoothed over the top of everything.
My jar of pins

Trimming the excess off after it's all quilted.  This is one of the few things I use my original pair of Ginghers for.
