Pinning the Twister

This is my Twister quilt getting sandwiched with backing and batting. At this point, I'm just making sure that there are no creases. I'm smoothing down the quilt top and batting to the backing. I have the backing nice and taut with the use of some masking tape.

After about an hour and a half, the three layers have been pinned together. It's all ready to be quilted! I actually have a few ideas about how to quilt it but I need some practice first. I hope my quilting comes out good because I like the look of this quilt! These aren't my usual colors but I do like the effect of the Twister block and I've come to love this fabric. It's the Butterscotch and Roses fabric line from Fig Tree  & Co.

Here's a picture of the backing. It's actually one of the twisters on the front of the quilt. It looks a little pink in this picture but it's sort of a gold caramel color with tan flowers.

I'm going to have a very busy day at work tomorrow. After pinning this quilt together, I tried to relax and watch some television. I need to save my energy for tomorrow!!
