Thank you so much for your well wishes; what a difference a week makes. I’m feeling better and have short periods of good energy. Hooray!
Since all of my quilting plan options for Congruence (including Plan C) have the same straight line quilting, I went ahead and got the quilting lines marked out on the quilt top using my Hera marker (Tips for Using a Hera Marker) AND I was able to get the quilt basted this weekend (Quilt Basting Tips and Tricks).
I used Kona Carnation for the quilt backing, and I also chose to add the Kona Carnation scrap left over after basting to my Sunrise Sherbet fabric pull. I plan to use 50wt Aurifil 4093 (Jade) for all of the quilting, even over the Kona Oyster pieces. I reserve the right to change my mind after I quilt a section, but it would result in so much less tying off and thread burying if I could do the quilting with only one color!
