Basted and Ready to Go

A while back I posted a picture of a quilt I had up on my design wall to work on placement of the blocks.  I moved a few blocks around and pieced the top together.  This weekend I based the quilt and began quilting it this week.  Made using a Wonderland honeybun.

The lighting was terrible, so the colors aren't exactly accurate, but we've had rain for the past 4 days, so I haven't been able to take advantage of any good natural light.  

I began quilting it with some straight lines lengthwise about 1/4" apart.  I'm loving the quilting.  I wasn't too crazy about this quilt before hand, but now that I've began quilting it, it's really making the top.  It's amazing with quilting can do to a top.  I'll post more pictures of the quilted top soon.
