Challenge completed!

I challenged myself to finish basting this top,,,,and I did.  Gotta go exercise so this is quick.  I baste this way because I find myself moving the top this way and that so I feel more secure if I am a little rougher on it than normal. 

Reporting this has been a challenge also.  After finishing the above paragraph, I had to put this in draft  mode and leave for my exercise class in Big Town, an hour away.  We came back home to be greeted with thunderstorms and a satellite provider that could not get through.  Everything has calmed down, however.

Ugh! Technical difficulties are no fun at all. On the bright side though-- how awesome that you got your quilt basted! I'm curious-- do you usually machine quilt or hand quilt when you baste like that?

I handquilt, although for several months I have been threatening to learn to machine quilt. Handquilting relaxes me, even though it is a long time. I usually make lap quilts and either stitch in the ditch, or just straight lines.
