It's great to have friends, even better when they like to quilt and contribute to your cause. I got so many tops at the retreat this year, and I'm working on getting them quilted up to give to Dr. Kaufman.
Dee made these three tops, and I had a nice, wide, decorator type fabric that worked great for backing. I was able to load one piece and put all three quilts on it. This largest of the three got a truck pantograph since I thought the colors made it boy friendly.
These next two, were more suitable for girls and I did an easier heart vine pantograph, which went a lot quicker than the trucks.
Dee also made coordinating binding to go with the quilts, making the whole process even easier. I must admit though that quilting and binding are my favorite parts of the process. Piecing becomes tedious to me rather quickly, especially when a quilt requires making the same block over and over.
