Tina's string quilt

Tina's Blue and Tan string quilt is finally on it's way back to her.
This is the quilt that was on my frame and that she was working on 2 weeks ago when the belt broke on Penelope.  The replacement belt finally arrived late Saturday in the mail and I was then able to finish up the last bit of quilting on this for her.

This is the entire quilt.  It will be a Christmas gift for her father in law.
Tina picked out the panto Popcorn and together we decided that Glide #24525 Khaki (though it looks Gold) looked best on the top.
Other than me lining up and getting her started on each new row, she did all of the quilting herself.  This was only her 2nd time using my machine and she did pretty well.  
She brought a mid Blue wide backing fabric that works well with the quilt top and we picked a blending So Fine thread for the bobbin.
Now she just has to get the binding done and it will be all ready to gift on Christmas day.
I think her father in law will love it.

What a great finish and I am sure will be well loved. Glad Penelope is playing well again. I am about to start quilting a customers quilt and Khaki is one of the last two in the lineup along with German Granite.

He did love it! Michele and I had a great time with my first long arm experience even considering the busted belt. I can't wait to play some more. Thanks for all of your comments. I appreciate them so much!
