#1 of 10 is quilted

The light is not the best for taking photos in my longarm room at 3AM although the track lighting provides great light for quilting late at night.

Quilted with a swirling/dwirling variation from the Pajama Quilter DVD, this HeartStrings top was pieced by the St. Mary's quilters in CT and is the first one of 10 tops that I plan to quilt in January. By finished, I mean the quilting...it will go upstairs and wait it's turn for binding!

What a lovely soft green. And I remember a similar stripe fabric that was from the 70's. Congrats on another great finish.

Why are you up at 3 am quilting? That's how you get so much done, on little sleep. Love the quilt and the quilting. The string blocks are so much fun to make.

Mary, you are my hero! I love checking in on you each day, because you are such an inspiration! When I grow up ~ I want to be just like you! Have a great day, and happy quilting!

Ah Mary I feel guilty when I get up early, but you take the cake. Admit it you got up in the middle of the night!
Do you, by the way finish off the quilts or have little elves that stitch the final bindings?
