Basting Away - 5 Quilts Ready for Quilting

Over the weekend I basted one of the quilts that I am quilting for one of my guild mates. It is a biggy, a full size King and then some.  I had to move all the couches out of the way to get it all pinned.  

Since I still had all the furniture moved out of the way this morning, I decided to take advantage of the space and baste a few more quilt tops. 

This is another top I am quilting for a guild mate. It measures 70 x 70

This next one is the one I was working on at the end of February.
It is on the list of quilts to get quilted by the end of the month.  It is going to a good friend in TN.


This is my Le Petite project for February.  


And this zig zag quilt is the one I started in Nov of 2009.  Wow, I didn't realize over a year has gone by since I started this one.  If I didn't have photos and time stamped proof on my blog, I would have sworn it was only a couple months ago when I cut out the blocks.  Either way, it will feel good to get this pink zig zag quilt finished and off the UFO pile.

That is 5 quilts ready to go.  Phew, I am so glad that part is over. I am sighing a huge sigh of relief to have these quilts basted. The basting part is always where the hold up is when it comes to completing my tops.  I really don't enjoy this part of the quilting process.  But once they are basted, it doesn't take too long to get them quilted.  Mainly because I am worried if I leave the pins in too long they will leave rust marks on my quilt. So I make a point of getting them done as soon as possible.
