It's quilted....

Are you tired of seeing these wonky stars yet?


I promised to show my other projects as soon as I'm finished with this quilt. I want to get this out to Tia by Tuesday morning.


It took me forever to load this puppy onto the quilting frame on Thursday. Frankly, it's been so long since the last time I did it that I simply forgot how to do it. lol By the time it's loaded, it was all I could handle.
Friday morning came around, I got it quilted in lick-i-ty-split right before I headed out to work. Gee, good thing I still remembered how to do loops and stars. :-)
And this morning, I got the binding on. I will stitch down the binding to the back later tonight.
----------------------------------
On the home front, we are without water today. We discovered that there's a leak in the water heater a couple of days ago, so Mr. Handyman (aka John) turned off the water this morning to see if he can fix it. Meanwhile, the laundry and dishes will have to wait. :-)
Anyway, my task for now is to check into the warranty 'cause shouldn't water heater last for at least 10 years or more? This is a new home and we've been here for only seven years. Arghghgh... the joy of home ownership.
Hope you have a great weekend!

I just love your bushfire quilt! It is such a fun pattern, and the yellow looks just great. I've got it on my to do list for sure.
Sorry to hear about the hot water heater. We had a water main break in the front yard two weeks ago and it was a huge mess. Water everywhere, we had to call the water company to have it shut off. On the bright side, maybe you could get one of the new tankless water heaters. And if you can't do laundry, that might mean more time to quilt!

I never could tire of looking at this beautiful quilt! I can certainlyidentify with the learning curve associated with loading a quilt onto the longarm. Good luck with your H2O.
