Just like Fred and Ginger!

After a very exciting and laugh filled dentist appointment, I started warming up dinner while I loaded another quilt onto Lenny, the quilting frame. I got the 60" x 70" quilt loaded and the frame prepared in about 45 minutes.

After eating and testing the tension with a few small adjustments, Squiggy and I were off and quilting! I used a Star Brand olive green variegated on the top and Bottom Line on the bottom. I even used the same needle that I used on the animal quilt that I quilted on Saturday.

The whole quilt was a dream! Squiggy and I were like 1 unit moving across the floor! Like Fred and Ginger!! And the result is fantastic!!! No thread breaks! Minor tension adjustments after several rows and it is now perfect!

This quilt was quilted for a gal that I used to work with. I hope she likes it!!

Interest pattern on the quilt and glad that it seems you have gotten your tension problems resolved. Yeah for you! Tension problems are the pits.

Ginger did everything Fred did, only backwards and in high heels ~~ Ann Richards on women having to work harder than men to get ahead.
