Back to quilting on a QOV...

Finally bid the cold and snow w/scooping Good Bye and got back to quilting.  This time on Miss Betty I, since Betty II had to go to the longarm hospital for a spell - hopefully, she'll be back real soon!  In the meantime, Miss Betty 1 and I are getting re-acquainted quilting another of Doris's QOVs:

And she didn't do too badly, once we got in the 'quilting groove' together ;-)

...and some of those Jamie Wallen swirls in the red star borders
I always enjoy looking at backs and this one turned out almost perfect:

Tension/stitch quality doesn't get much better than this -
LOVE it when this happens, don't you?!  WTG Miss Betty 1!
Turned out pretty neat, we think:

Another winning Quilt of Valor by Doris...Congrats!
And while Miss Betty 1 and I are enjoying our quilting time together, I'm still quietly pining away for Betty 2:

Miss Betty 1, HQ16 on the right - the first and still adored ;-)
just don't tell Miss Betty 1 or we might have 'issues'!  And we certainly don't have time for that!!  Hopefully, Betty 2 will get to come home sometime next week...

In the meantime, time for more quilting!

  1. Oh, No! So sorry to hear about troubles with Betty 2. Hope she is home again soon! This just shows a really good reason to have a back up long arm.....wonder if hubby will by this! The quilt of Valor is lovely! Great quilting!
