Flimsy #2 for H2H

It's a Flimsy! A second flimsy for H2H. I'm good at getting to this point...(especially since I used blocks found in my stash!) the basting keeps me at bay... but not this time. The last few quilts I have pin basted, and that is lots more palatable than thread basting. (What's your favorite method?)

Here's the official portrait:
It isn't ironed yet, and I didn't stretch it out - thus the scalloped look at the bottom. Any ideas for quick quilting this one? I probably will just make diagonal lines through the blocks.
 
That's my Whoop Whoop! for this week. Come see me and other Whoop Whoops at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. She's having a giveaway today, too.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
Hugs,
Terri

  1. I love making those blocks. Your color choices are great. The centers really pop.

  3. I always pin baste (and if the quilt isn't a monster size I spray baste too)

    Your quilting plan sounds spot on!

  5. I like how you controlled the centers and used a few more colors around them. It's very eye-catching and looks like it will be a cozy, comfortable quilt. Whoever uses will will surely love it!

  6. Great how you took the easy block and put a pop of color in the centers. Very nice.

  7. I love your quilt top, Terri! A boy or a girl would love it.
    I safety pin baste my quilts. Wavy line quilting is fast and easy for me. A loose free motion meander is good, too.

  9. Great top; love the colours! I am a spray baster; for me, any drawbacks are outpowered by the speediness and lack of floor crawling

  10. Beautiful flimsy! Good luck with your basting. Certainly the most backbreaking part of making a quilt!

  11. I love spray basting with either pins or a basting stitch around the edge. This is a fun quilt. I think wavy lines would be nest, or a FMQ meander.

  12. Cute! I usually thread baste, since I'm a hand quilter and the pins get in the way. Yesterday (with help) I spray basted a small baby quilt that will be machine quilted (straight lines only). I'll probably reinforce it with some pins, just in case.

  13. Very pretty quilt. I love the color combination. I use 505 spray adhesive to sandwich my quilts.

  14. I love the bright centers in the blocks on this quilt - very pretty! And if I baste (not needing to for the long arm) I use June Tailor basting spray. I'm not patient enough for pin basting!
