Long arm quilting another quilt

I also finished long arm quilting this quilt that Kim made

She wanted pointy swirls allover (easy peasy)

unfortunately I don’t know what it was, but after I forward the quilt after the first row the tension was wrong on several places, but I figured I’d wait until I had it all done, then flip it over and mark it with pins- I ended up having it on the frame 3 times!! So sorry Kim- it’s fixed now- at least I hope so…

Dec 5th was a little snowplow

Dec 6th was a fireplace and mantle- look at the stocking hanging over it! (I thought it was a heart but Solveig corrected me)

I’ve also been having my pregnant neighbor over with her kids once a week for sewing lessons, here’s her oldest daughter holding her first finished block so far (They are making two bed sized “flowing in the breeze” quilts with my 8” QUBE set)
