    My friend came with a quilt that her boyfriends family was going to throw away(they actually had it in a bag by the curb and they brought it here). I've never put a whole quilt on the longarm frame before and I had my doubts on how well it would work. The quilt was hand tied and done a very long time ago. They wanted to keep the quilt in tact as much as possible. So here it is after it has been quilted, washed, and hung out to dry. It looks so much better than when I first seen it. I wish I would have taken a picture of the before.

    Super Save --- doesn't it feel so good to save another quilter's hard work and keep the quilt alive in the family? You did a great job.
