Remember when I showed you a peek at my sketchbook here, showing how I work out the quilting for a quilt?

It is finished! It turned out lovely. The quilting is kind of hard to see, I used a lovely neutral variegated thread that blends in with the quilt nicely and accents the beautiful piecing.

It’s been a while since I quilted something like this, and it was a lot of fun! I’m working on a second one for the same quilter, and it’s just as lovely. I can’t wait to show you how that one turns out! I got it up on the frame ready to go yesterday. Hooray for finished projects!
