Loaded and quilted

I finished the scrappy TATW top, I figure I used 192 different fabrics, they show up twice in the quilt, in 2 different blocks, so that means a total of 194 different fabrics in this quilt. The quilt measures 99x99, which should fit my bed nicely. Did it make a dent in my stash? Not as far as I can tell, maybe a ding. It has left me with 32 ends, of the sets of 6 fabrics, that I now will decide what to do with. Do not worry; I will decide, I am thinking 6 or 9 patch with setting blocks which will come later. Judy's October quilt will be my next project. I started the quilting before the USC game. (They won) and continued to work on it during commercials and half time. I finally completed quilting last night at 11:00 p.m. I used the woodlands panto by Lorien Quilting. I really like this pattern. I had it all set up already on the longarm, that is why I choose this pattern but I do think it turned out nicely.
The picture above is of the completed quilted top and the one below is a closer view. I will trim and sew on binding during the week. I will do this along with working on the October quilt. I want to get the binding on before Sat so I can stitch down while watching the USC/Arizona game.
Well I best get busy if I want to accomplish my goals for the day. House work, quilting and of course cooking dinner. I hope and pray all have a great day.

P.S. I don't know how I did it but when you click on the first picture it takes you to Judy's October quilt so enjoy!!!!!!!!!

That is one gorgeous quilt, Dot. Don't you love all the patterns from Lorien? I get them from Willow Leaf Studios. Jodi's pantos are great too.
