Just had to share

Krista, lolablueocean, has been long arm quilting one of my quilts for me!  The Cracker Scraps Quilt (I have a tutorial for this quilt posted HERE).  And she's taken a couple of sneak peak shots of it being quilted.  I'm soooo happy with how it looks.  And I just had to share her photos.


The quilting pattern that she used is a Modern Baptist Fan Pattern that I selected from one of the sites that Krista recommended.


Here it is when she started...

Here it is while she is in the middle of working on it...

Final stretch of Angela's quilt




And here it is all quilted!

and the back!

The Back!







Just as a reminder, it looked like this before I sent it to her...


Cracker Scraps - Queen Sized




and the back  (the colors in this photo are probably the most true to life)

Cracker Scraps Back



This quilt already has a home in our guest room...so if you ever come stay with me you will be sleeping under this!  Now that should entice you!


I'll definitely post more pics when I get it in person and put the binding on.  But I was so excited that I had to share!
