Deana: Mom's Gold and Black Quilt is DONE!

YAY!  I got it all quilted for her!  Isn't she a beauty?  I was so picky on this quilt because it is so pretty.  I didn't want to mess it up with the quilting.

This was also my first quilt done on my new sit down longarm - Juki.  Can I say I LOVE IT!  It is so much easier than trying to get a large quilt in the small space of my Bernina plus I will save years on my Bernina.

I used rulers for the first time ever on this project as well.  There would not have been enough space on my Bernina for those either.







Today I am linking up with:


This is also my first finish for the 3rd Quarter Finish-Along.  I will be linking up there as well.  This project is item #1 on my 3rd Quarter List and you can find it listed at this link.

Absolutely amazing quilt. And the same for your organisational skills, I haven't even written my list of finishes, and you are ticking yours off....I think I need to stop reading quilt blogs, and do some quilting.

Wow! That quilting is sublime! Congratulations on a great job, I'm very jealous you got to use a longarm! You're an inspiration :)

Your Mom's quilt is a stunner and you totally did justice to it with your quilting Deana! A lot of gorgeous details in it now and it looks wonderful!
How fun about your Juki!

This is fabulous! And wait, you already have a finish for Q3??!! Whoa! I've been getting better at ruler work on my longarm... and yes, although I adore my Bernina, she doesn't have enough throat space to stuff a big quilt through. I really like the stylized hearts with curlicues you did in the triangles. Wonderful pebbles too. Great great work. :-)
