    Yes the gift quilt is double sided. My first attempt at that. It came out pretty well.

    Here is the back of the tee shirt quilt. I made 2 for a friend who has twins that are graduating from High school in May. I alternated the sashing and border colors for each one.

    I'd like to know about your quilting setup, what kind is it and how do you like it? Oh, BTW, your quilts are very nice too!

    Wow!! Those backs are as nice as the fronts. Where do you get the energy for that?? :D I'm out of energy once the top is done. I recognized one of my favorite daisy fabrics in the green quilt--upper right-outside row--2nd from the top. :wink:

    The frame is a Hinterberg Stretch frame with 10' poles. I hear everyone talking about using 12' poles but don't know where they get them as Home Depot, Lowes only sell 10' ones. Anyway that goes up to 120" if I need more than that I'll figure out something. The machine is my beloved Juki 98Q. A workhorse of a machine that does a wonderful job of sewing.
    I got the frame for Christmas 07 so I'm still in the newbie process of quilting. My husband made me the handles and a cruise control which works very well. I now find quilting to be a joy which is why I'm getting my ufo's finished off. I've done 8 quilts and have another 8 to go.
    I had tried the John Flynn frame prior to this but found it very awkward, it sits on a shelf now. The stretch frame is under $900 and worth every cent.

    I knew the handles looked handy husband made but are you saying he made the cruise control too? I don't think mine is quite that handy! :shock:

    I just realized I still have my Juki in the pictures. A couple years ago I got a Bailey Home Quilter, first a 13" and now a 15". What a great machine. I never got over the skipped stitches with the Juki. Guess it has something to do with needle flex.

    I'll post a picture or two of the current setup.
