Workin' on the Brown Crumb Art Gallery Quilt

I rented time on a longarm machine yesterday to quilt Michael's quilt. I've been calling it Brown Crumb, but he insists I start calling it Art Gallery. Okay, it IS his quilt. I did a scribble quilting pattern with wonky outlining on the stars. I had intended to quilt it on my domestic machine, but I am having a bout of tendonitis in my right arm and even brushing my teeth is painful. On the longarm machine I can do most of the work with my left arm. It ends up costing $, but that's the way it is! Thankfully I have been selling off all my spinning fiber, so I had a little money to splurge. Oh, if anyone is interested in the fiber, it is in my etsy store at:

The old joints don't want to cooperate with me spinning or weaving, so the supplies and equipment are all going, a bit at a time.

I will post a pic of the, Art Gallery all quilted and bound as soon as I can.

Stuff I got done!!!

Well, got the top done on the Boxy Stars. I am sending it to the longarmer on Monday. This is the one that is a gift for a friend. This pattern goes together so quickly!! Thanks Bonnie!

Also, I got the Crumb Quilt top done. Michael (DH) has claimed this as his. Only his. No one can touch it. He wants to call it Art Gallery, or something like that. He says it looks like modern art framed. Isn't it great that he likes it? I will quilt this one on the longarm machine I can rent time on in Duluth.
Happy quilting!
