American Jane - Basted

Thursday night I cut out the batting for the quilt and rolled it up, the way I saw on the Craftsy class I took (well took part of). 



Then today I basted the quilt.  Like Susan, at Canadian Abroad, I pinned my backing to the floor before doing the basting.  It actually made the basting easier and I don't have any tape so it was a great solution.

Here's the back of the backing


and the front after basting





And now I can start quilting. 

I think my goal will be to do a certain number of lines a night.  I think I'm going to do diagonal lines through each square and then maybe shadow lines around the blocks.  I have some pieced white pieces that I want to hide the piecing.
