Relief mixed with a sense of accomplishment

Well, the Loopy Over You top is completely done!! Wow, what a sense of relief. It seemed to take forever to quilt, but that mostly was due to finger tip amputation. Funny how you take those little tips for granted until one is gone! This was the very first quilt that I free motioned quilt. Now THAT was scary. I am thrilled that I finally tackled that new challenge and while I definitely have a long way to go before I could say I am good at it, at least I have started. Hannah loves it...that is all that matters!
Here is a little sample of the free motion quilting. Obviously a simple meander pattern.
To go with the Loopy name, I quilted loops in the border:

Now, off to pin my Christmas Lights quilt top. Promised myself I would get 2 tops quilted before I started another quilt top and I am chomping at the bit to start another one! Not sure which one, just any one! lol The tutorial for this quilt is underway for those that have been waiting!


  1. Great quilting - congrats on the finish - hope you have just as much fun quilting the next one!

  2. Nice job on the meandering. It looks like you are an old hand at it. Er, you are experienced with it. I'm impressed! Are you going to do the Quiltville mystery, Carolina Christmas.

  3. I love the quilting. You've done a great job. Now you've taken the first step in machine quilting it does get easier, honest.

    Love and hugs Gina xxx

  4. Very pretty...that shade of blue really is effective! Louise
