Another Customer Quilt

Here is a customer quilt that I finished a while back. It is a Sunbonnet Sue and I used the "Fleurs" pantograph on it. I really like this pattern and can't wait to use it on a lot of my own quilts.

The backing is a pink "Minkee" I just love how wonderful that it quilted. I was a little nervous at first because I had never used it before but I just love it.
I have more customer quilts to show as soon as I can find the other camera cord. Right now I am making a costume for a wonderful friend of ours. He will be "Peter" in his Church's Easter play. I have part of it made, but I will post photos of it when it is finished.
Just fixed spaghetti and garlic toast for supper. Got the laundry and dishes finished and I hope to settle down with the family to watch a good movie tonight. Waiting on more snow. The forecast is calling for 4-6 more inches!! :( I am so ready for spring, just like I'm sure everyone else is too.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!

You are brave! It really looks great. The best thing you did was move your machine in the house so you could get those tops done.

The quilting pattern is such a lovely one. Using the minkee on the back of a quilt is such a neat idea (now that I know it quilts not too badly :)

I love the idea of Minkie as backing, I have used fleecy and that works really nicely too.
