More longarm practice

Yikes! It seems like ages since I’ve posted – life got in the way. I have been quilting, though. A while back I saw this quilt on the Tamarack Shack blog, and fell in love with it. I thought it would be a perfect quilt to practice more longarm quilting. I suck at pebbles, so I decided this quilt would be my “Pebble Quilt”. Plenty of blank space to pebble to my hearts desire!

IMG_9100Took forever. Had a blast. Decided to hang it on a wall. Yep, the first full-size quilt I’ve ever hung. Used the Hang-it Dang it since it was in such an odd place. One nail and done. Didn’t need hubby falling off a dadgum ladder and breaking his neck.
