Default Labor of Love finished!

Hello fellow quilters! This is the quilt I posted about in Main. I thank you for all your advice especially about tying. That was going to be my last resort. I know what a back braking job tying is for me and Iím so happy I had the right needles for my Manuel long arm to quilt this double knit/leisure suit fabric. I was able to meander through although I almost ran over my finger more than once trying to stitch across the double knit seams. My foot wanted to hang some of the seams and stretch the knit. When it did go over thatís when Iíd nearly get my finger under. Itís done and labeled. Hal A Lou Yer!
I might have a few bubbled ups at the seams or where she pieced a square but like my grandson said itís for him, not a show quilt. Great grandma Mary had pinched seams and squares that didnít match up so I guess my quilting wasnít so bad after all-lol

Great job on the quilting and being polyester--it will last for a few generations.
