Today was basting day for this one.
So far I've been referring to it as "Fall Frenzy"
because it really was kind of a mad frenzy the way
I put it together...but I'm also thinking of calling it
"All Around the Pumpkin Patch" because in each
star's center is the same pumpkin fabric.
I love pumpkins!
I guess I'll figure it out later...
Even with a busy schedule, I did manage to get
it basted today--doing my best to get
TWO quilt completions in one week!
These little guys really save me some time.
I'm kind of old-school in that I've always
hand-basted every quilt but lately, I've
been doing a combination thing.
I use the pins where I know I won't be quilting--
in this case, just outside each of the blocks.
This left me with only the very outside of the quilt
and the centers of each block to baste by hand.
Well, a very full day has me falling asleep at the
computer so off I go to dream of how to quilt this one.
