Little Bites pattern called, "Drop." I can see in the photo I completely forgot to erase my chalk lines! This quilt only measures about 10" x 12".

One thing that I absolutely hated about quilting this quilt was the backing and the white on white fabrics. Because the backing was super tight crisp weave muslin combined with a thick rubber feel in areas of the white on white on the top it created what I think looks like preforated stitches on the backing. You can also visibly see that the stitches aren't as nice on the top when they go through the areas of the white "rubbery" feeling flowers. I consulted with my longarm group for suggestions and was told perhaps a smaller needle changing it often. They also said as for the preforated backing that a light misting of a spray bottle or very light steam ironing would help close them.
So then this tight weave backing got me thinking about those who use sheets for backing. I'm guessing not only cotton quality is in question but what about that thread count!

Corey Yoder that I quilted this past summer. Actually I quilted this one twice for Corey out of two different fabric lines. Corey needed this quilt in a rush for publication in the Holiday issue of Stitch Craft Create. I hadn't realized the magazine was published and on newstands until recently. You can see more of the quilt here at Corey's blog.

I'll be back working on my client quilts this week. A very special thank you goes out to those who insisted I'm the only longarm quilter for your tops and waited for my return.
