I quilted!

After my machine stopped working, I spent a couple of nights sleeping and surfing the net. Last night, I finally decided to do something. I was going to load a charity quilt onto the frame and then cut fabric. Well, once I loaded a quilt, I decided that it was small enough to actually quilt quickly so I practiced my loops and stars in preparation for quilting the Milky Way quilt. I went to the basement at 7:45 to start.

And a close up. I think it looks pretty good and I will probably load the Milky Way quilt and start on it this weekend.

When I was done with this quilt, it was only 9, so I decided to load another charity quilt to practice with the pantos. Once I had it loaded, I just went ahead and quilted it, too!

And a close up. You can't see the mistakes too well unless you look really close. The quilt and the fabric tend to hide it.

And I was done at 10:45. Pretty good time, I think!
