Leaves and Swirls

June 27, 2011

Another weekend just flew by!  I am happy to report that I finally made it to the grocery store.  My family is happy too. :-)  I think the birds, who seemed to be chirping extra loud because the feeders were empty are happy as well.  Feeders and fridge are full.  I am also happy to report that Becky's quilt is done and off the frame!
I used Hobbs 80/20 batting and So Fine thread on the top with Isacord in the bobbin.

The design is all freehand.  I think it compliments the quilt nicely.  I always love the back of quilts almost as much the front.

I hope Becky loves her quilt as much as I do!  I'm off to quilt like I'm quilting in a marathon.  I already have another client quilt on the frame.

  1. I'm like you and love seeing the back as much as the front especially when you have that great lighting to really see the quilting. Great job....keep quilting!!!

  3. Another winner! I remember when I hand quilted a queen sized quilt for my MIL. I would get under the frame and look up at the quilting, because I love the backs too.

  16. I too love the back of quilts, which is why I often use plain fabrics!

    It sounds like your business is going well, which is great.
