I made the backing for it last week, and bought a batting at Walmart, too, so I was really prepared.
Even at that, after starting the pinning-in process at 10:30 a.m., I didn't finish until after 3:00 this afternoon ! But, I admit that I did go back and add extra basting, remembering how much I had wished for that the last time I machine-quilted.
So, I'm not sure how I am going to quilt this one, and I don't know when I'll approach it, but now it's ready whenever I am. I'd like to get another big one basted this week, but they're talking about rain now; knowing how long a quilt-basting takes me these days, I may just count my blessings for making it today, and put the next one off for surer weather for most of a day.
