    First of over 80 done

    since I have taught my DH to sew, he has made over 80 quilt tops. I have lost count. For a long time he would only sew 2.5 inch blocks together. I finally got him to venture out of his safety realm and do some Journey to Arkansas Quilts since they are very easy. Knowing I could never get them all quilted myself and still do my own stuff, we purchased a longarm machine that I am still trying to learn how to use. I have done a few practice things but this is this first completed one that I've done for my DH. Just got it bound yesterday. Thought I would share our handiwork with you. Thanks for looking.

    What a fabulous joint effort!
    It's a great looking quilt.

    My friend also had an incredible pile of quilt tops.
    Since she was doing all over quilting - (swirls mostly) - she started using the tops for backings as well, and immediately reduced her future workload by half.
    Instant reversible quilts!

    Beautiful quilt and great quilting job. I'm still learning all the in's and out's of my Tin Lizzie 18. Started quilting a quilt for a Christmas gift and ended up with "eyelashes." Just finished rippinng out all the stitches last night - fortunately only had a 9 inch wide row of stipple.

    What a beautiful scrappy quilt. How fun to quilt with and support each other. You two sound like a great team. DH helps me with quilting too but does not make his own quilts.

    Very pretty. I like that my Husband does not share my quilting or quilt making with me. I am very picky and he is not.

    Fabulous scrappy! And what a team. My DH would have a heart attack if I tried to teach him to sew...lol. He will take me to quilt stores though so maybe there is hope!

    Of course I do. He always ask me if he can have a piece of fabric (after the incident) before he cuts them up. He is taking up a lot of my sewing space though. And, he still won't fill his own bobbin!
