A start and a finish

Let's start with the finish.  Here is the Awesome quilt I posted about a while back.  I thought you would like to see it finished.  I am so happy with this, the pattern and fabric, and it was so fun to quilt.  Fast figure eights, and some good ole stippling.  I still think there is a place for stippling, even though I love all the new inventive background fillers.

I love the fabric in this quilt, and it works so well with Jenny's pattern.  A win win.

A view of the backside, lots of texture.  I matched my top and bobbin threads, so you can see the purple on the back along with the white.  Love that.

And, now the new.  I am starting quilting on an applique quilt, and I am totally enjoying this one.

I have gotten a good start on this quilt, so hopefully there will be more pictures of it soon.

Enjoy your starts and finishes, and I appreciate you looking at mine.

  6. Esther- I love the quilt made with the quick curve ruler. I finally got mine so I hope to be making something this year :) I really like the quilting. Do you use a ruler for the piano keys?
