Crawling on the floor

I spent this evening getting the gray quilt ready for quilting! I pieced the back - where I ended up not using the HSTs. I was having so much fun rearranging them that I decided to save them for another project. Luckily, I had enough of the backing fabric that I was able to use it without piecing anything else in.

I basted the quilt by taping to the floor by layers from the backing up to the top, then pinning at 6-ish inch intervals.

Charlotte helped. She's cute.

Pinning like it's my job.

Yay painter's tape!

All done, and ready for quilting!!


  1. I love your quilt. I'm drawn to the whole Modern Quilt movement, but haven't done any myself as yet. But I just love the negative space and the stark color combination. I'm going to enjoy seeing what you do with the quilting.

    1. Thanks so much! I'm loving the modern movement too - it's brought new life to my quilts! I love the solids!

  2. Beautiful quilt top! And Charlotte is adorable:)

  3. I love this quilt!! Will love seeing it finished with quilting. :D

  4. This is so adorable! I can't wait to see how you finish it!

    1. Thanks honey! It's for Duffer, he asked for a lap quilt since he's cold all the time and Warsie is hot all the time. Lol

    2. I was trying to make a 'manly' quilt - red is not a color I usually work with!
