    Hot off the machine

    terri bb sent me this quilt to quilt for her. She wanted "fluffy" batting so the monkey wrenches would POP. So, that eliminated an over all design. I'm still not very good with freehand stuff. But, overall, it didn't turn out that bad. However, I did find out why the lady that sold me the longarm won't use the fluffy batting!! You lose a lot of control when doing free motion quilting. Here she is!!

    Pretty quilt and I agree....extra loft batting can give you fits both putting it in and taking it out! I avoid it.

    Very pretty-love the fabrics!

    You both did such a great job on this quilt. I love the black white and red together.
