Pin basting the houses quilt

Yesterday I finished piecing the houses quilt top, and I pieced a backing from large scraps of fabrics that were used in the top. This morning I took it to the Arts Centre, and sandwiched and pin basted using several work tables pushed together.
Tomorrow I will begin the free motion machine quilting.
