Pays to be Square......

I told you on my last post that the second quilt I had done on my long arm gave me some trouble because it was more of a parallelogram rather than square.  Well, I used it for practice so that when I did this quilt for my daughter's soon to be born baby boy, it would turn out better. 
 
It was loaded a couple nights ago. 
 
 
....but I couldn't get to it until today.
 
It worked up so much easier being square.  LOL....I highly recommend it. :D
 
Again, I used the popcorn panto with So Fine thread in a medium gray.
 
 
I even had the time to put the binding on tonight.
 
 
So here is the finished quilt.
 
 
It feels so good when something works out well; and I am proud enough of this one to give it as a gift. 
 
Next....I am not sure if it will be the other baby quilt that I have for her or the Fancy That quilt that will be for me. We'll see which one wins out.

  2. You are off and running! I don't have the hand and eye coordination for something like that but it sure would be nice to have a machine available 24/7 - you must be having a ball!!
