It's basted!

I'm calling this quilt the monster, because it is so cotton picking heavy and big! I had to move furniture out of my living room to lay it down and get it basted.  I spray basted it and my husband had to help me.  Since the furniture was already moved (and the carpet was sticky now) my sweet husband shampooed the carpet for me!
Furniture had to be moved up against the wall and into the dining room.  The cats really liked having the green chair on it's side.  Yes, I know it needs to be sewn but I do not have the proper needle to do it.

I had to redo the back because of all of the wrinkles.  Do you think it would work better next time if I lay the batting down first and then put the backing on and let it dry before I do the top?
You have no idea how hard it was to get the whole quilt in one picture.
I like to pin baste the outside edges after spray basting just in case I missed a spot.  I also ran out of spray while doing the top and had to send my husband to Walmart, he's such a sweetie!
I need to decide on a color for the binding, I'm thinking one of these blues.  Which would you choose?
My husband says the last one on the right.
I should get it loaded on my treadle tomorrow.  I had to clean my house today, I have company coming over tomorrow.  Then I got distracted by a puzzle, it has Singer Red Eye 66 and a cat on it!
Back to work on Monday, I'm hoping it does not take long to get this quilted!
