After I finished the quilt top, it sat in my sewing basket for about a month while I thought about what stitch patterns to use on it. Since it has so much blank space, I toyed with the idea of trying out some fancier patterns, but in the end settled on something simple.
Here's a shot of the quilt top before I pin-basted it to the batting and backing. Even now I'm not sure of its exact dimensions, but I had to piece together both batting and backing to make them long enough. There's a bit of extra material around all the edges, but I'll trim it down once I'm done quilting it.

Right now I'm taking my time with this project; I work on it in the evenings to relax. Perhaps it will be finished by Christmas.
