Going Around in Circles

OK, I cannot tell a lie, this one was a wooly booger to get quilted. The quilt was 2 inches bigger through the center than it was on the top and bottom.

I double-batted it (Soft & Bright and QD Puff) to help fill in some of the mountains. I used King Tut’s Oasis thread and quilted swirls very tightly to nail down any puckers who showed their heads. Even I was surprised at how well it turned out.

No comments:

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
