I started out using my longer 2" heavier pins and I did a lot of unsewing because puckers in nearly every curve started showing their ugly face. You wouldn't think a mere pin would cause such a difference in sewing pieces together, would you?
When I started out yesterday I remembered to change out pins and started using those beautiful, wonderful, amazing fine pins and eureka, no puckers. Here is the top of Total Eclipse ready for quilting!

After this large undertaking, I moved to a smaller project on my table. We are playing bingo at quilt camp this year, and at guild on Thursday, I picked up my fabric pieces to make my bingo card. I whipped it out so quickly that I decided to play with some quilting within each square. It's not neat, but it was fun to just play on my machine for a change.

OMG, my rows are amazing. Each has its own personality and I have them up on the wall. Since I chose such a busy theme, it's going to take me a few days to see how I'm going to incorporate them together. On the wall, right on top of each other, it's way too busy. I'm going to have to set some sashing between each of the rows and around the borders I think.
Each row has some orange, green, and purple in them. This quilt will end up replacing Pie in the Sky in the kitchen and with our accent wall being a darker pumpkin-ish color and, the remaining walls being a lighter blue, I think I'll head that way with the sashing strips. So many possibilities!
