Customer Green Patchwork Quilt -- A Friday Finish

This week I finished the longarm quilting on this green patchwork customer quilt.   I'm happy to cross another item off of my long list of projects!

Here's a picture of the back with the sun shining through.  The customer gave me a gently used sheet for the back.  There was only one inch on the bottom and 1/2 inch on the top extra.  Whew, that's close.  Yes, I charged her extra for me to sew my own fabrics to the top and bottom so that I could attach it to the longarm frame.  Normally I require 5" on all sides of the quilt for longarm services.

I'm linking up with Myra at Busy Hands Quilts for Finished or not Friday.
