Basting the day away...

Well...I am pushing through the Bento Brown quilt.

I ran into some snags with this quilt. I had backing fabric in my stash, but I didn't have enough. I don't know if anyone else has this issue, but I bought a yard and a half of this fabric like 2 years of course I am unable to find it anywhere. So, I need about 5 more inches to fit the back of my quilt.

The backing fabric is a soft I want to make sure that the rest of my backing is flannel too. I found a light yellow that I had a long scrap of - and that was that.

I took a 20 minute break from work today and put my basting safety pins into my quilt after I spent the morning stitching my batting together and piecing the yellow to the owl backing fabric. Once 20 for 5.

Here is what it looks like waiting for me to quilt it. Unfortunately, quilting takes up a lot of space, so I can't work and actually quilt it. But it is prepped and ready to go.
