Thank goodness for pieces of batting that can be pieced together......backs too ! (I'm not revealing the back until I'm all done!)
Here's an in-progress photo......the center is all quilted. I need to figure out what I want in the rust border, and then quilt it and the little pieced outer border. As you can see, I still feel safer with thread-basting, and I was able to move things around enough in the living room today to set up the basting frame.
I'm liking how this is quilted. I just looked all over Flickr for plus quilts, and many of them are quilted the same, it seems........a quarter-inch in from the edge of the block, with the centers left empty. Not to pat myself on the back, but I like this look much better........plus, I got a REALLY GOOD upper body workout out of it at the same time ! Love that free-motion quilting .
