Esther's quilt

This quilt started out slooooowwwwly.  So quick to quilt and so slow to rip!

As soon as I completed all the cross hatching on this block, I realized it was wrong!  See, I had loaded the quilt sideways so I'd save time on rolling.  Didn't realize I'd waste the savings in ripping.  See I stitched the stencil sideways.  The diamond shape should have skinny side pointing to the top of the quilt which is to the left or the right.  Argh!  But after many days, I completed the quilt.

Here's the whole quilt, still on it's side.

A closer look at the center.

And the side with some of the border.

Thanks for letting me quilt your beautiful quilt, Esther!

I love this job!

One of the best things about being a longarm quilter is getting to see all the beautiful quilts others have made up close and personal.  Tops I would never dream of making.  This is one of those quilts made by a nonagenarian quilter.  It's so beautiful already.  It will be a pleasure to quilt!
