    Hello all,
    So if you remember me, I just posted my very first wall hanging here. And on Sunday I started working on a second wall hanging, and guess what, I finished the top today. It is from Carol Doak, Ribbons. I went all girly with it, pink colors. I could not get some of the darn points to match, but what the heck, I still love it, it is my second baby! :)

    Getting ready for Valentine's Day? I love all the shades of pink that you used. And love the pattern.

    Well I see the addiction to quilting has hit hard already Candi...lovely your quilt, the colours are cute, and as for unmatched points... well blow me down with a feather....maybe one or two slightly off, but for your second attempt it's marvellous :D :D :D

    Thanks beachlady and Izy.

    My Avatar photo is of Positano, Italy on the Amalfi coast. We were there in June for our honeymoon.

    Thanks all for all the kind words.
    I have a question, I am not going to be quilting this for a while, maybe 3-6 months, how should I store the top, should I baste my layars or not?

    Again thanks for you kindness and help,
    Candi

    It's lovely! I can't believe that is is only your second top! You are obviously good at this! Make more!

    Very pretty, Candi. You need to give yourself a big pat on the back.

    As far as storing your top until you're ready to quilt it, well, I just fold mine up and when I'm ready to quilt it, I give it a good hit with the iron and steam the wrinkles out then I pin or spray it. However, I'd like to hear other opinions, too.

    I currently have a couple of unoccupied beds in my house so my quilt tops and also "sandwiched waiting to be quilted" ones end up there. Also, I have a treadmill in my family room (sewing room) and it makes a great quilt hanger. Seems that's the only thing it's used for these days!!! ( I had to clear off my son's bed for when he visited over Christmas)
