Quilting the Beast
It takes a looong time to quilt a queen sized quilt, even on a longarm. I spent all day quilting this at Laurena's but the sore muscles are definitely worth it. I LOVE how this came out!
I used a simple pantograph with tulips and leaves which had the airy look I was going for. This was a much easier pattern than the spider web insanity I did on my last quilt but I had to do 12 rows of it and each one was taking me about 20 minutes. It's fun for about the first 2 hours, then it just gets tedious... luckily Jack Johnson is my quilting buddy which helps the time pass more quickly;-) Rainy day here in New England so it's perfect for making binding... all 400" of it!
