Quilting finally...........

I threaded my longarm right after lunch but it was after 4 p.m by the time I turned the machine on.  Once I get started I'm fine, just need the push to start.  I got this one quilted and trimmed by 6:30.  Then I cut backing and batting for the flannel top made of squares that I just finished but I wanted to do another quilt with the blue thread on the machine first.
I cut the batting and pieced the backing for this one and started quilting it about 8:30 and finished a little after 10.





I did loop-de-loop on this one and got it trimmed too.  Today I need to look for 2 bindings and decide if I'm going to do them all by machine.

:) I can always tell that creating the quilt top is what you like to do best -

Wow, I wish I could quilt them that quickly. But it just takes longer on a domestic machine.

Good morning Wanda...You continue to bowl me over with how much you accomplish is one 24 hour period. I love the colors and the quilts, along with the little wonky table runner from yesterday's post. It's so you! Stay warm and enjoy your day.

We humans are so funny. We spend more time procrastinating than doing. You got those 2 done very quickly! What are you favorite threads for the Longarm?

You are making me just all excited to get my long arm home. Sometime in March, sigh. I can't wait to quilt thru all the tops on hangers in the closet. Lovely, lovely job on yours!

Your quilts make me want to do what you're never supposed to do at quilt shows - touch them! I just want to reach through the screen. They are so beautiful, the blues just glow!
