Quality time with Lenny and Squiggy

Last night and today, I spent some quality time in the basement with Lenny and Squiggy. Now, for those new to my blog, Lenny is the quilt frame and Squiggy is the Viking Mega Quilter. Laughing, are you? Can you really say that you don't name your machines? They are major parts of the process and are going to be around for a while. Hey, men name their cars ...

Anyway, I spent yesterday morning before work loading the Chicken quilt onto the frame.

Once I got home, I was able to get about half of it quilted before I couldn't stand any longer. Today, I had to get it finished. Linda wanted to quilt a Nickel Quilt so I had to work hard to get it done. I think it looks great!

And it's already puppy approved!

After this, we were able to get Linda's quilt loaded and she got started on quilting and I attached the binding to the quilt and started the hand stitching part. It's going to be a big job!
