WIP Wednesday

It's most definitely a WIP Wednesday, the Parkinson's charity quilt got quilted :)))))))))))))))))))))))
After changing the needle, I had no thread breakages at all.  I used 50wt Aurifil in ecru and I love it, will have to order some more. I'm really learning how to use the frame and the machine,love how quick I can quilt the quilt, as I got to the end my stitches were alot more uniform but we're not talking feathers...
here's a piccie of it on the frame
DH and I also worked out the heights needed adjusting, it's the maximum size the frame can take without putting in the queen sized extensions.  Will measure it tomorrow if I remember. I wanted to get it finished so I could unpick the leaders and bury some of the threads at patchwork club.  I'm done on the front and trimmed the backing, tomorrow I'm hoping to do the back and cut the binding...will be a finish for Friday fingers crossed, then it can go in the wash :O)
These are much larger squiggles than I've done before and it suits the quilt...am really happy :O)
I'm linking up for WIP Wednesday  at freshly pieced
Have a great evening, we've got a new series of the Apprentice starting, so time to turn on the tv...
