# 3 of 10

After my tension issue yesterday, I frogged (ripped out) the bad stitches and then didn't come back to this until today. Now it's done! The top was pieced by Marianne, a HeartStrings quilter, for Alycia's QOV Project, quilted with my Swirls template, and it's the 3rd of 10 tops on my list to be quilted this month.

I got a call from the lighting place that my order is already in - that was fast since I just placed it yesterday and they told me it would probably be 2-3 weeks. Now I have to line up an electrician to install it and then I will be able to see my quilting! (I hope).

Hi, Mary: Beautiful quilt and quilting! What kind of quilting machine do you have, and what kind of system that has this swirls template? Thanks, Sue

I really like the way the swirls give movement to the boxy squares. Very nice.

The quilt looks great...swirls are perfect for that one.

I know you'll be glad to get your lighting in...hopefully it won't take too long for the electrician to get there.

Hi Mary,
I love the swirl quilting pattern. It's one of my favorites. Looks great on Marianne's quilt - which is a wonderful pieced top too. Together you all will make a great quilt for a service man/woman.
