First one quilted for the New Year....finally

I'm finally back to quilting! I am a little backed up and I need to get these finished. I think I have a total of 12 more as of right now that need to be quilted. So here is the first one...It is huge! 96x114 to be exact. This one was pieced so well, it was a dream to quilt. It took a while to get it done but it did quilt up nicely. Now I have to get the binding done on it this evening and deliver it in the morning! :( I have the binding cut, I just need to press it and sew it on. That part will not take too long but the had sewing will take a while. I am pretty fast at that part once I settle down and get started. After I deliver this one tomorrow I have to run and pick up some batting while I am out. Hopefully, I will get another one loaded on the frame tomorrow evening. Fingers crossed. :)

I guess I had better get started! Supper is ready and waiting for Richard and Hunter to get home. On the menu this evening....Pot Roast with potatoes and carrots, corn on the cob (Hunter's favorite), mac and cheese, and rolls (not homemade but store bought) LOL!

Such a nice quilt! Glad you are enjoying your new home. Dinner sounds great - what time should I come over for? I LOVE corn on the cob!

Beautiful quilt--love the log cabin with two contrasting medium/dark colors instead of a light/dark.
Your dinner menus always sound so yummy!

Lovely quilt! I'm terribly slow with bindings! And I just can't seem to get the knack of making good mitered corners in spite of all the instructions I've seen.

Could I come for supper? ;)

Log cabin quilts are probably my favorite pattern - this one is a beauty. Can't believe you are going to get that binding sewn on yet tonight - you must be fast!
