Off the Frame

The surprise gift came off the frame today and it just received a trim before the binding goes on.  Since it's a surprise, I'm not ready to show off the front side yet.  However, the back side looks pretty cool too.

And a the outer portions ... 
(This backing color is more accurate in the top photo.)

Some of the quilting stitches are cream: the continuous curves and the loops in the center, also the mums.  Other stitches are a dark purple : compass and the meandering swirls and the borders.

I'm excited to get this one off the frame after loading it last Friday.  My quilting is usually much slower.  This time, I worked hard not to over-quilt it.

Can't wait to present the quilt and then I will share the front side here.

Enjoy your day!

  3. See? It's THIS kind of stuff that puts me in total awe of your quilting. You, dear girl, are my quilting heroine!!!!!
