    I wanted to get this made in a hurry so I picked an easy pattern, hit my stash and in three days this is what I ended up with. I pieced it on a Saturday night from 10:30 to 1:30 AM and then pieced the back on Sunday and long arm quilted it myself on monday and sewed down the binding on Tuesday. Phew. It is done and on it's way tomorrow. I hope it gives her comfort and warmth. I used my friends long arm and this is my third quilt on a long arm. It is a rose vine pattern with brown varigated thread.

    I'm stunned that anything done that quickly can turn out so well. The quilting patter is wonderful!

    well I feel like the borders look LOL :lol: I little wavy but, hey what ya expect at 1 in the morning. I was in no mood to measure, pin and ease to avoide the "wavy border" She is just going to crawl under it anyways so I don't think she will mind.... LOL I should be ashamed :oops: of those borders though and the sew job on the binding but, like I said phew!! It took me 8 hours on Monday to get it quilted.
