I'm really proud of how quickly the actual quilting went. I pinned the quilt sandwich together, and decided to do a great big free motion meander across the whole top, by maneuvering around the pins, so I hardly had to remove any pins while quilting.
I know some people like to spray baste, and I've done it a couple of times, but pinning is still my habit, so far.
Very happy with how it turned out, and it has already been donated. Hooray!
