# 1 on the Blackberry Creek quilt camp list!

Well, I just straight lined the quilting, fast! Love my Janome 6600 Accufeed foot!
This was an experimental quilt, as I was testing out a ruler for cutting the "Tumbler" one patches.  Ruler approved! lol...I had enough of the backing to fold it over to the front for the binding, a 1st for me, as I usually "apply" binding...
Lets see if I can post a close up...
This will be winging its way to Canada to a friend whos grandaughter calls herself "Ladybug",,,
Onto the next project....
