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 again....no 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 me....so, 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 do....so, we shall just have to wait and see.
The Tractors are coming......the Tractors are coming.......the excitement continues.....
