Quilting my Modern Meadows Quilt

I finished piecing this quilt back at about 11:00 at night.  I insanely decided to pin it that same night.  I was up working on it until almost 1:00 a.m.  This was a beast to pin and quilt.  A queen size quilt is huge.

My kitchen floor was barely big enough after moving everything out.  


And after all that pinning, I thought, "Hey, these pins will make for some cool pictures at a wide aperture."  I was already tired, what was an extra 15 minutes to pull out the camera and take some pictures.

Quilting wasn't as bad as I expected, but it was certainly a lot of work.  I actually didn't remove hardly any pins while quilting.  I just quilted around them.  I did quilt over one pin, but didn't even break a needle.  It probably saved me at least an hour or two to leave the pins in until the end.  I might have to do this from now on.  I could do quite large sections without even stopping.
