#1 of 10 is quilted

The light is not the best for taking photos in my longarm room at 3AM although the track lighting provides great light for quilting late at night.

Quilted with a swirling/dwirling variation from the Pajama Quilter DVD, this HeartStrings top was pieced by the St. Mary’s quilters in CT and is the first one of 10 tops that I plan to quilt in January. By finished, I mean the quilting…it will go upstairs and wait it’s turn for binding!
