The next step in this quilt was of course the quilting.
I sent it to the wonderful Rosalie of Rose Quilting
The lovely fan style quilting in the 'circle' blocks and the 'square fans' in the outside of the circles
a feather in the border
cross hatching over the pretend embroidery blocks
a larger feather in the external border
The whole quilt on my bed
and hanging at the quilt show over Easter. You can't really see it here but I bound it with a wavy edge to mimic the effect of the ricrac in the quilt. The binding is the 3 colours in a random placement.
and from a distance while we were setting up.
So in case you can't tell, I love the quilt. At a healthy 90 x 99" it is great on our bed & when hubby rolls over and takes the quilt with him, there is still some left for me.
Catch you again soon with some quilt show photos.
