    A friend asksed me to turn her curtains into a bedspread.
    They are stretchy & moved alot.
    But I was able to do it.
    What a challenge this was.

    Thank you!
    I was so nervous I would ruin it because of the stripes!

    Looks good, you are a brave quilter, I think I would have turned down the request. Lucky friend that you did it.

    Thank you!
    I floated the top.
    It made it easier to keep straight.
    This is the first time I've done it on such a long piece.
    I usually only do it on small peices.

    The large pattern used for quilting is very eye appealing and coordinates well with the fabric!

    The curtains must have been lovely and the quilt turned out beautiful. You did a great job. But what does "floater" mean I'm not too knowledgeable about some quilting words.

    That's ok. Thank you!!
    On a long arm frame you usually pin the top to a roller.
    And the quilt top is rolled on a bar.
    Floating it means you let it drape to the floor instead of rolling it.
    That way you can adjust it side to side for straightness.

    She loved it.
    She's had these extra curtains for a year.
    A bedspread was on her to do list.
    She just glad she didn't do it.

    Oh okay since I don't have a long arm I guess that is one word I don't need to know about. But thanks anyway. It's always nice to learn something.
