First quilt finished!

I have had this quilt for my Guild's Kids Komforts charity for a while and just never got around to quilting it. The guild collects quilts and assembles tops and pairs with backings to make quilts. Many of the members chip in to help finish the quilts and they go to local hospitals and charities for kids to have them.

I think that this is an I Spy quilt. I used a really cheap cone of cream for the top and a light yellow Bottom Line for the bobbin. I had some issues with thread breakage. But with 2 and a partial passes to finish the entire thing, I could handle a couple of thread breaks.

Having the amount of quilting space is definitely going to take some getting used to! It is awesome!

SO JEALOUS of all that quilting space now! I'm still muddling through with my 9" throat space and pleased (for the most part) with what I'm able to do. However, there have certainly been quilts that I would have LOVED some additional throat space for.
