Hand quilting again

For the past month, I've been planning to take this quilt with me to work and stay late one night to baste it using a conference room table instead of my living room floor.

It didn't happen.

I spent my Sunday crawling around on the floor basting the double wedding ring.

I decided on traditional thread basting rather than pins or spray baste since I'm doing this on a hoop as a lap quilt.

My big challenge is to keep from over-quilting.  I'm starting with outlining the rings while I decide what modern looking quilting I'll do in the centers.  Any ideas?

Did Mitzi help you baste?

I'm casting my vote for filler feathers.

Thanks for the charm squares; they're lovely!
