Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Just four days ago....

I loaded this quilt onto the long arm so that when I was ready to go, all I needed to do was quilt.
 
 
Today was the day.
 
 
I free motioned an echoed loop over the whole panel/borders.
 
 
I think the quilting brought an ordinary panel to life.
 
The best part was finding out how easy it was to work with minky. That's what I used for the back of this quilt...a soft, yellow minky.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Oh!  What better to use for the back of a baby quilt.  It is so luscious. 
 
I have another minky backed baby panel planned, but can't put it on the long arm just yet.  I am waiting for my customer to drop off the backing to her king-sized t-shirt quilt.  I am hoping she brings over minky as it was really easy to work with.  Don't know why I waited so long to give it a try. (Well, actually, I do know.  The fuzz I thought would drive me crazy)
 
I have the bindings made for my Quilts of Valor quilt and this panel quilt (need to get them on) and even have the binding ready for the T-shirt quilt. ''
 
So, I guess I will leave the long arm free for the customer and get into my sewing room to get a couple bindings on. 
 
Happy quilting!!

    I love the minky and how pretty the quilting design shows up thru it.
    What a wonderful baby quilt!
