Before I pin the quilt top on the frame, I always pick the thread color ... I went through that process with you the other day, and decided on the rose/pink color. When I go to put the top on I find the center at both the top and bottom; mark it with a pin, and then pin the bottom edge of the top to the top roller.
|The top is rolled onto the top roller from the bottom edge.|
|Top edge is in position and ready to be measured and pinned|
Finally the quilt is done ... hurray!

That's it! I didn't get to the other quilt, but that one is next up! Glad I'm working my way through the pile! I just love it when I get one on the frame and can actually start quilting away on it. I really get tense when I start because I always want to make sure I do my best. When you're quilting for other people, there's always the chance that they won't love it. That is in the back of my mind, and I treat each quilt like it is my own. If I wouldn't do it on my own quilt, I'm not going to do it on your's. When I am at my Innova quilting, I just kind of get lost ... once I actually start the quilting, it's so relaxing!
