Framed At Last!

Yesterday I finally got one of my show quilts in the frame and started quilting it. It has to be done by July 25th, and I have to quilt a second entry as well, so I don't have much time to spare!

This one is queen sized, and is the largest quilt I've ever done by
machine. I am "floating" the top and batting rather than rolling them on feeder bars, which is another first for me. I'm hoping I can finish it without having to turn it top-to-bottom, since I'm not sure how to do that! Luckily this quilt is going to be mine, so if it's a little off it won't matter too much. (And the back, where the mistakes are likely to be most obvious, won't be in view at the show!)
