Finished!

Thankfully.  I think I frogged more on this quilt than I have in the last few years put together!  While nowhere near perfect, it did finally turn out fairly well.  Hopefully Joyce will think it's OK too.Suzanne did a quilt not long ago that she did continuous curve in only part of the blocks.  I thought the pattern  created would go well with the circles on this quilt,  so I 'borrowed" the idea for the chains.  Thanks Suzanne!  

The 2 stencils I used are by Helen Squire. And I used my circle lord to make the double circles. 

The batting is Quilters Dream "Puff"  and the thread is Superior "So Fine"





Now, we'll take the entire bobbin assembly apart to get all the paint reside out, clean and put it all back together again, and oil it really well.  Then I should be good to go.

And the best news is that I'm finished my February quilts!  Now for the next 2 weeks in between working to get our guild show ready, I'll be quilting my own 2 quilts for the show.  Looks like I'll get them done...yeah!

  7. I don't know what part I like best - butterfly motif, feathers in the gold metallic borders, or curved crosshatching. A job well done!!

  12. Gorgeous. I love how the CC in the gold creates that great negative space that pops in the blue. The back shows the work. Lovely.

  13. Wait a minute. I just looked at that again. There is no SID. You defined the border edge with fill. Very clever. I'm going to try that.
