Almost to the finish line!

Because I bought this chair, for months I have been working on a pinwheel quilt to go in my bedroom.This project has officially taken over just about every corner of my very small apartment. It currently resides in the large space known as my dining room/hallway/living room. As this project continued I decided to add applique hearts in the border and name the quilt I Heart Pinwheels.

After much anxiety I finally had the courage to back this quilt top tonight. I'm short about 500 safety pins even thought I basted with quilting/basting adhesive I still like the security of the pins. I have even turned on the air conditioning so that it may be cool and dry so the adhesive is not too tacky. I have no idea how I am going to quilt this monster of a quilt as it measures about 90 x 90. I think I may just jump in and stipple the section with the pinwheels little by little and do straight lines in the border......YIPES!!!!!
