I'm on a roll...

 I'm on a roll!  I just got this baby quilted and off the frame.  Now I have to dig out the binding and work on that this week.  Glad to have another one marked off my list.  
I guess what I enjoyed the most about making this quilt is the fact that I was able to use some really ugly fabrics in it.  LOL!  
A view of the back.  I really like using that Dazzle design.  I think it is something that I will be using more often.  I just like the texture it gives.  
 I do have several more tops that have the backings ready.  It is funny how I will not use my quilting machine very often to quilt my own and then when I get in the mood I usually quilt several at a time.  I think I have 4 or 5 more that have the backings ready.  I guess next up will be a string quilt.  I'm hoping to get it loaded on tomorrow.  It will probably take me a few days because I want to do some fairly dense quilting on it and I'm slow.  LOL!  First I need to clean and oil my machine real good.

Ugly fabrics notwithstanding, it is wonderful, Kristie! I really like that quilting design you used.
I put the fabric in the mail today--they said it should arrive Friday.

Great job! I love that about scrappy quilts too...you can use all the fabrics, even the "uglies!" Looks like you'll have lots of binding to do now. :)

I love the photos of Leo...what a sweetie. So nice to see him thriving and I'm very happy he has a boy to take care of! :-)
