Neptune Wave Quilt Complete!

Fresh from the dryer and now listed in my etsy shop!






This was, hands down, the best job I've ever done free motion quilting.  I basted the heck out of this!  I usually try for every 6", but this time I did every 4".  My hubby even sat on the floor at 11pm with me to help me baste because I was so tired and had a long way to go!  Isn't he sweet?!?!?  Extra basting may stink, but I did not have a single pucker on the back.  *Squeal!*  As much as I hate to do it, I will be basting all my quilts like this from now on.

Stats:  1 Neptune Jelly Roll, lots of Kona Medium Gray, 3 yards of various Atlantis prints, 5/8 yard of S.S. Pink for binding

Great quilt and grat husband! Do you lend his basting skills out? On a more serious note, do you pin baste or tack?

This is really gorgeous Kelly! I'm very impressed with how you kept the strips so straight. I have the hardest time with that, although I've noticed they cooperate better when I press them first.
