Best decision ever. Well, best quilting-related decision ever. Basting is sucky, and thread basting is so sucky that it overwhelms the desire to finish the quilt and leaves me procrastinating and grumpy. I switched to safety pin basting, and it's working just fine.
I realized how happy this decision has made me when I sat down to baste the next quilt, which is made from a Moda Bliss charm square stack, some white fabric, and a wee bit o'yardage from a print in that line. This quilt has been just as fast as the squares one before it. I think after the battle of attrition that OMG Pink Quilt was, I've needed to feel like I was making fast progress, and simple charm square quilts are fitting that bill nicely.
This entire thing was pieced yesterday, and half of the quilting is done - I loved the grid quilting so much on the first charm square quilt that I'm doing it again. The back is a flannel, also from this line, which I think will prove quite snuggly.
Due to my astonishing ability to fail to plan ahead, I have nothing to bind this with. Nothing suitable, anyway. I've got some purple, some jade, and some dark gray. Meh.
