Quilting the Basket Weave Quilt

I have the basket weave quilt on the frame. Yay!!! I'm using yellow thread and  I pieced the back with red, yellow and blue. It is looking nice. Here are some pictures of the progress.



Here it is on the frame. I use a Juki with a Proflex frame. I also always float the top. My Juki has HandiHandles (for pantos) on the back and a Jands handle (for freemo) on the front. Works like a charm.



I am using the panto called Cotton Candy. Note my homemade stylus, lol. Made using wire and duct tape.



Here's a little of the quilting. This machine just does so well. I love my Juki.

Hopefully I will get this done in the next few days.

I love the quilt...I came here from Yahoo Juki group.

I have a Juki but it sits lowered in a desk. What a difference it has made to have it. I cannot say enough good about the machine.

Hi Wilma!
What a fantastic quilt! And yellow thread is a perfect choice~ I am wondering if you can share the advantages of floating the top~my tops are always rolled up but I am interested in your approach!

That is a great quilt!

What model of Juki do you have? I've got a frame and a regular sized Pfaff on it, but am looking to upgrade the machine.
