Are you singing along in your mind? I hope Wasted days and wasted nights doesn't stick in your brain for the next few hours. :-)
It's a big job making a back for a big quilt. Good grief, 3 yards of fabric X 3 makes for a big piece to press and square up!
I'm basting with YLI 50 wt machine quilting cotton in a pale yellow, because it was what was on my machine from the last quilt that I did. As for bobbins, this is the opportunity to use up all those partial bobbins left over from customer quilts. It's quite a mixed bag of threads on the back. I'm basting rows across the quilt then I go back and do the vertical lines. This is giving me a grid of approx 2". Once I start quilting I snip and pull out the basting as I go along.
**3:30 pm update, basting complete! Let the quilting begin!**
