Almost Ready To Go!

Apparently no one close by does quilt basting so I'm going to disobey doc orders and do it myself.  I'll see if I can get my kids and a couple of friends to help as well.  Once it's basted, it's ready to quilt.

Here's the quilt with borders:

I managed to get the borders done without having to piece them and have enough for binding.  Not bad for guessing my yardage.  LOL.

I found some gorgeous brown flannel the other day.  What I didn't think about was that it was a plaid.  You know you are good when you get the fabric to align up with the design.  If I was awesome, I'd be able to make the backing completely look like one piece, but I'm not that good.

Here's the backing.  I used the flash so the color appears lighter than it is:

Once I get it all pinned/spray basted I'll be ready to go!
