"Kaleidoscope Stars"

One more UFO quilted, I've never had so many quilts to bind before, at one time, in all my life! I am happily getting used to this. Sundance is purring like a kitten. (Sorry, Hannes!) He doesn't like the cat references, reminds him of Turbo.
Kaleidoscope Stars; back, detail:

I have loaded another quilt top onto Sundance this afternoon, I did it exactly the way Bonnie showed me how, it was so much easier to manage! Thanks, Bonnie. This quilt top, "Sugar 'n Spice" is an oldie, too; a class sampler from when I taught beginning quilt making at our local Technical College 15 years ago. No quilt gets quilted around here before its time.
Guess what? It's time!
Life is Good!

32. Slow down.

Whooowhoo! I'm so glad pinning in that way worked for you. I've tried lots of different ways, and this was the only way that I liked..using the table to pin against.

The quilt looks great!

Looking very, VERY good, GF! So how soon can I send you your first quilt-for-income?

You're funny - nothing before it's time! ;)

I'm not surprised how great you're doing, I'm not, but I am! Who knew I could be so thrilled. Golden hand/wrist and that pearl from Bonnie - I dig it!

Dance in the Sun with Love, *karendianne.

Wonderful quilting! Would you mind sharing what's Bonnie's method of pinning (if it's OK with Bonnie)? I got a longarm recently and found that pinning a large quilt is daunting.

As soon as I get home, I just know you are going to have a Trunk show at LQS, so I can see all these beautiful quilts! All I have seen are beautiful, Pat yourself on the back for me !!!!! Bobbin
