Busy week

Last Monday I loaded my first quilt on the newly acquired long-arm, which took most of the morning.  After lunch, I started quilting in a simple meander and in less than three hours I had the whole quilt done.  Of course it is a small lap quilt, but I was amazed at how much fun it was to easily quilt.
