John Deere Quilt

First off, thanks for all of the prayers! Deb is doing better, she got to come home yesterday evening, she is very weak but she is home. :)

I got the John Deere quilt quilted yesterday. It measures 60x72. This will be a Christmas gift for my 3yr old nephew. He just love John Deere. I know it is upside down in the photo but I was just unrolling it from the frame.
Here is the back of the quilt.
I used this pantograph, it is called Frequency. Not one of my favorites but it goes fast and it would be nice on the right quilt. I didn't want to do anything really fancy on this quilt so I picked this design. Now I have to work on the binding somewhere between now and Christmas.
Hopefully today after I do my feeding and clean the house, I can get another top on the frame. I need to quilt a quilt that is the same size as this one for my other nephew but it has turtles and fish on it. I just hope I can get it finished today...
