Using the longarm is about the only thing I can do without this bandage getting terribly in my way so I think I’ll see if I can dig up another top needing quilting and get it loaded.
I used the Spiral Square panto by Keryn Emmerson, Warm Blend for the batting, and green Superior Sew Fine for the thread. The binding is made but I’m not going to attempt that til I have full use of all my fingers.

Oh my gosh, you’re SO fast!
I have a quilt on my long arm. It’s got 4 more passes to go. I won’t tell you how long it’s been on there. I think I got bored with it, but it’s a gift so I better finish it sooner than later! 🙂
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Your quilt is beautiful, Judy. Then again, I don’t think you’ve made one that isn’t!
Glad you are able to use your long arm. I’m thinking you weren’t put “under” when you had your surgery. Seems like it takes me a couple of days to recuperate from the anesthetic when they put me “under”. Be careful you don’t hurt your finger.
No, I was completely out for the surgery but I have slept quite a bit the last couple of days. I think today is the first day I haven’t taken a nap but I slept a bit late this morning.

🙂 I have plenty of tops that need quilting Judy if you need something to quilt!! Some are destined for charity, some are class samples I haven’t finished, some are group quilts from my guild and mini group.
I hope your finger heals soon and you can get back to making quilts.

Nice bright star quilt! Looks like a winner to me. Good to hear you are getting things finished even though you were bandaged a bit. You young whipper-snappers mend more quickly than older hens!! 🙂
Speaking of hens, have you gone shopping for any chickens yet? Just wondering.

There is something about that color combo that is really “grabbing” me! The black sets off the other colors and sharpens them brilliantly. Gorgeous! Hugs, Doreen

Looks fantastic! Love the colors and the black. I love to incorporate black into my quilts! Also, so happy that you were able to use the longarm without a problem. That means it is a good time to get those UFO’s quilted. You can always bind them later on!
That quilt is beautiful. I love the bright colors. I’m inspired!
Hope your healing goes quickly.
Oops! Wrong name. I was thinking of someone else but it still looks gorgeous!
Judy, That quilt is gorgeous! I love the prints and the mini polka dots! I’m not sure how you are managing to thread your long arm needle, and insert the bobbin and all the other stuff—Just don’t tear any stitches or you will have a nice scar. I did that with my hand surgery years ago getting to bored and not waiting for it to hearl. The Dr. unwrapped my hand and said, well “I see you’ve been busy, and now it’s healed, it’s to late to do anything about all the stitches you have ripped out”. I can still see that scar. Take care.
Looks wonderful, Judy! Did you find your other set of handles?
judy, the quilt turned out very nice! great job!
Love the mini dot fabric. Beautiful quilt.
I missed something. What happened to your fingers? Was it an accident or planned surgery?
