Hi everyone,
I posted a few weeks ago about my D4P and needing motivation to finish it. Well, here it is. Finally done...I have to admit that I like it now!
This is the first one I have quilted with a pantogram as well. I also posted about how my machine was bouncing around and the laser moving alot...even with those problems, it still turned out nice.
This quilt will be given to my sister-n-law and her husband. they are still in Germany and will be retiring from service this year. They purchased a house in our neighborhood, sight unseen, except through us and our opinion. My plan is to have the quilt draped over the small wall as you walk in the door, to surprise them for a house warming gift. It will be the first time they see the house and the quilt.
Wish me luck that they actually like BOTH :lol: :lol:

Close up of pantogram waves..See how choppy the waves are? That is because of the bouncing, I think???

I don't know about the house (although I'm sure you did a fine job of finding one for them), but I know they will love the quilt. And what a neat surprise to have it there when they walk through the door.

Sorry you were so frustrated with the quilting but it turned out nice! I love the bright colors and I'm sure that they will enjoy the quilt.
