After church and Easter lunch at Nanna's, I managed to get this quilt pinned and ready to go. I forgot that I had bought fusible batting just to give it a try, and I ironed it on. Didn't feel too comfortable with leaving it at that, so I went ahead and pinned. It was a nice way to get everything lined up and nice and smooth before pinning, though. Not sure if that's worth the extra $2...I just can't bring myself to machine quilt it. I'm such a chicken! It'll take a while, but out comes the quilting hoop! Besides, I bought red hand quilting thread for this project and it must be used : ) So much better with the 5th row!
And the back....nothing fancy. I should go ahead and get the label ready to go while I dig through boxes trying to find my quilting hoop. I hate moving.
2 more tests this week and then I get a little break. Sounds like a good time to quilt and get this one finished before the end of April!
