More Customer Quilting

Well we are expecting another BIG snowstorm this weekend! :( Trying to prepare for it, so if you don't hear from me for a few days you will know that our power is off as usual! :( I am so ready for Spring!

Here are a couple of photos of a customer quilt that I have on the frame right now. It is very pretty red and blue log cabin quilt. I am quilting a random leaves design on it.
It is backed with a red backing and the top is red and blue so I am using a turkey red thread. It really shows up in the blue areas. Just pray that I don't run out of backing! It will be close at the end. The backing is cut crooked so one side was pretty short. I am trying to roll it tight so it doesn't take up too much extra. Hope that works! :)
This customer sent 3 tops to be quilted. This is the last one. The others are finished, the gray deer quilt that I showed in the previous post and one more, but the photo of it is on the other camera and I don't know where the cord is for it. Why can't they make one cord to fit everything for the computer??? :( Anyway, if I don't find the cord before I send them back, I will take another photo of the white/cream one.
I had another customer quilt dropped off today! :) The backing is some kind of pink fuzzy stuff. Not sure what the fabric is called but it is something like what you would make a teddy bear out of. The pile on it is short so hopefully I will not have too many problems with it. I haven't quilted with it before. Oh and the top is a Sunbonnet Sue, very pretty!

That storm you are expecting is to hit here tomorrow...sure hope it is a light one and hurries on thru.

Quilting with a fuzzy backing may be a problem...sure hope not for your sake though.

Stay warm.

I can crochet a granny square too thats about it... I did a afghan that was one big one! Turned out cute :O). I was to lazy to put all the little squares together. Yours will be pretty when done :O)
