I had better get quilting

So, the quilt tops are taking over my house! I have 3 tops to quilt now :) I love piecing tops, but when it comes to basting, I totally put it off. Once I get going I am okay, it's just starting...

I finished the Tagalong quilt top, here it is with the backing and binding so you can see what I am using.
Then I have Pint Sized, look how cute! I have a nice swirly blue flannel for the backing of it.
There is also a larger lap size quilt called Spring Stars. I want at least two of these quilted this weekend. Wish me luck :D

I love your quilt tops! I was the same way when I was quilting... I'd love piecing, but actually basting the quilts--eek. I have a bunch of quilt tops up in the attic as a result. I love the Fig Tree line--such gorgeous colors.

Have a great weekend!

Love your quilts. So beautiful. Have you ever tried quilt basting spray? I'm going to give it a try on my copy of your aqua/orange baby quilt. I read about it on this post:

Happy quilting!

love the spring stars pattern. I'm expecting and would LOVE to sew this quilt for our new baby. Is this one of carrie nelson's quilt patterns or yours? would you be willing to share?
