We're on You Tube!!!

Hi There!

Gilbert and I loaded one of my very first quilt tops, on "Bertha". Took us about 3 hours to set it up, or "load it on" as it's called. Apparently, they say once you're used to it, it should only take about half an hour to 1 hour.

Anyhow, I timed Gilbert and it took him about 3-1/2 hours to quilt this Queen sized quilt. Now, THAT was incredible... IMHO!!!!

I fell in love with these cute little sheep!!


It's a "high loft" batting - that means it's REAL PUFFY!

And...... in the meantime, we of course had to take some videos...

Here's me, pinning my quilt onto the canvas...

And here's Gilbert, working with "Bertha".

Afterwards, I trimmed and re-squared up my quilt and even took the time to cut up and iron it's binding. Tomorrow morning, we'll load up another one of my quilts and while Gilbert's quilting that one, I'll be adding the binding on today's quilt.

Love the quilt Rosa, and Gilbert's quilting job looks really good!
Keep up the great work. Too bad you're in Cananda, I could use Gilbert and Bertha (LOL)
