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.
