Extreme UFO..ahem..

Ok, so, this one is truly an extreme UFO. Why u ask, well I'd machine quilted it on a friend's Voyager 17 longarm last year. The machine didn't take well to being turned in a curvy manner, thus I really disliked what I'd quilted. I washed it hoping it would look better, but nooooo.
So, I let it sit, thinking someday I'll "skin" it, re quilt it, all the while sooo dreading that job...
Now that I have an HQ16, I loaded it on the frame and it only took 2 hours to "skin".  I popped holes in the backing, but only one tiny hole in the front, quilted a panto pattern, and voila!
The pattern is a Miss Rosie's...

As a side note we had a swamp cooler put in the sun/sewing room yesterday. I was able to get in here by 8:30pm instead of 11pm due to the overwhelming COOLNESS!  All this chilliness should get me more longarming time!
Note to Barbara Ann...Nope not a hard one to make, u just really need some kind of design wall...

Anyhoo, I made this quilt in a weekend. New pattern to me. I like how complicated it looks, but is sooo easy!  Its for my nephew. I'll be longarming it when hell freezes over, ahem, ok, when it cools off!
