Ready to be quilted...

I made this top back in 2007...I decided it was time to start quilting some of the tops I have made.  It is close to twin size....I forget the width but it is 78 inches long.

I spent almost the entire evening getting this baby ready. The time I got done crawling around and getting things stretched out, and then on my knees and elbows as I pin basted...I bet I will have rug burns tomorrow.

I did take frequent breaks...I had to because I had potato soup cooking and wanted to make sure I didn't let it boil down and burn

I wish I could say I would start quilting right away, but not too sure of the thread situation.  and I have no idea how I want to quilt it...I am consitdering just some straight lines.
We had rain, freezing rain, and snow today.  It is supposed to get up to 40ยบ tomorrow, and I an hoping it reaches that at least..
