Climbing that ladder again!

I didn't have quite as many customer quilts to longarm this week, so I did it!  I let myself throw one of those UFOs on the allover machine just so I could get it done!  While I worked on a custom for a customer on the other machine, I did an allover feather design called Goosedown on this one.  I cannot tell you how good it feels for this quilt to have gone from an unfinished UFO in the 'pile' to a quilted and bound quilt in a week!  Here is that Jacob's Ladder dancing husband this time...sorry!

Bambino always enjoys a good finish!  He was helping out with the squirrel population (which is out of control by the way) when he ran back over for his supermodel pose.  I just love my Bammie!

Here is a close-up of the quilting.  Don't know if you can see it that well, but the curves of the feathers helped with all those straight lines.  I bound it in the same red as the skinny border, which also helped tie everything together.

I LOVE watching football with the Hubs, but I just cannot stand to just 'sit'.  So, I scurried to get this one all ready to bind before we sat down to watch the game.  I was worried about not finishing the last few blocks and if this would end up being a usable size.  It finished at 85 x 100!  That's usable to, I threw the excess pieces away.  Don't cringe....the sashing and HST were a woven fabric.  Had I held onto them, they would have just frayed away into oblivion.  It's all good.

I have a lot of work to do for Bossman today, so I don't know how much I will get done for me.  Also have that dreaded ironing to, we shall just have to wait and see.

The Tractors are coming......the Tractors are coming.......the excitement continues.....
