Second Quilt UFO almost finished!

A friend came over the other day and fixed my longarm (it has had a problem off and on for two years now so I'm super excited that my longarm is finally working perfectly!) so I was able to get the "I Nearly Lost My Mind This Christmas, 2009" quilt up on the frame and quilted. This quilt is crazy busy because all I did was grab my pile of 4 1/2" squares and keep sewing until I felt better :) I think it will be a great picnic quilt, since I won't care too much what gets spilled on it. It's only about 50" square so it's not very big but will be easy to take along when we go kite flying for the day.
I ended up backing it with a very tiny, busy print that is black with pink flowers. It was only $2.00 a metre (I'll buy almost anything for $2.00 a metre!) and I'm glad I found a quilt to use it on.
So, tomorrow, I'll finish the edges and then I'm on to the next quilt! It's feeling so good to get some of these quilts finished!
Happy stitching, everyone!
