Another step finished!

Now it's ready to quilt.  I have never machine quilted a quilt before, everything I have done has been hand quilted on huge frames.  Well except for a quilt as you go and I don't really count that.  So last night I didn't know how long it would take to baste this quilt, it's only a lap size quilt, but it took almost two hours.



It isn't finished, but the next step is finished!  I have another fun green Moda print for the binding and I can't wait to finish it completely.  I still don't know what to do with this quilt.  Maybe I'll sell it, but I'm not sure yet.


I'm linking this to Kelly at Needle and Thread Thursday. 

Today I'll be finishing the top of another WIP and basting it so that next week I can get them both quilted.

Have you ever tried spray basting? It's quick and easy and makes the whole process a lot faster. There are probably tons of tutorials on how to do it. Good luck on the machine quilting. It's fun!
