Finally!...this baby is off the frame!

 Finally!...this baby is off the frame!  Shew....it was on there way too long but all my fault.  This is the beautiful Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt made by my SIL, Kellie. 
 She worked on it on and off for about 2 years.
 I don't remember the exact size but it is a large Queen.  All fabrics in this quilt are from the Paisley Park collection and Warm & White batting.  This baby is heavy!
 A pic of the back.  I quilted it with the Lush Leaves panto.  Now to square the edges and get the binding on it.
 I also loaded another quilt top on the frame.  This one belongs to a lady from NC.  She brought me 7 KING size quilt tops to be quilted. 
 I'm going to try to get this one done before the weekend.  Her grandson will be here in KY this weekend and he is taking this back down to her.  The rest of them will be picked up by her daughter that lives here.  

Other than that, I did prep a few more of the coffin shapes and did a little bit of cleaning.  LOL!  As I mentioned before my MIL will be house sitting for us for a week and my house is a disaster!  LOL!  

Today will be a long day.  I have plans of working on this quilt, cleaning on my house and helping my sister stain my mom's front porch and back deck.  Chantal already started on the front porch yesterday but that back deck is huge!  No way of getting it all done in one day.  Hunter will be working for the neighbors again today.  I say neighbor but they live a mile away.  :)  I think today he will be weedeating around the edge of their pond and dam.  

***Comments on my last blog post.  Moneik, for some reason it will not let me respond to your comment....sorry.  Love, yours shows as "no-reply" so I can't respond to your comment either.  Sorry...but I do read and appreciate every one of them.

Your quilting on the beautiful hexie quilt turned out well, with no damage done, except to your nerves and timing. Maybe I can correct the no-reply problem on my comment. We'll see. ---"Love"

Oh, what a relief to have the Flower Garden quilt completed. I wish a smoother time with the next quilt.
Sounds like your schedule is full to overflowing today!
